Manchester United boss David Moyes says he's ready for a testing start of the season.

United have a difficult opening to the season, which will put Moyes under immediate pressure. They play Chelsea, Liverpool and bitter rivals City in their first five games.

Moyes said: "It's a tough start and I'm not convinced that's the way the balls came out of the hat.

"You have to play everybody twice but I look back over the last five years and I have never seen United get a tougher start in any Premier League season."
