Hull City boss Steve Bruce says Manchester United remain contenders for the Premier League title.

He disdainfully dismissed the notion that Moyes will not be given time to build his version of a United team capable of following the many versions Sir Alex Ferguson built.

Bruce said: "They'll not even contemplate it. They'll give David time, I'm confident of that. That's what they do. They'll give him a chance to make his own mark and do the job the way he sees fit.

"When you're following in the footsteps of Sir Alex, whoever you are, it's a difficult job to grasp.

"David has handled himself fantastically well in a dignified manner, like we knew he would."
