As the emergence of Adnan Januzaj has since proved, United remain well served in many areas.
Moyes said: "We have said before that Adnan can play any one position off the left, off the right, in behind (the striker), and he can play as a centre forward as well. He is a really good centre forward.
"Shinji (Kagawa) can do two or three jobs as well. That is why in the summer we didn't need people in those roles, which a lot of people suggested.
"We have a lot of players who can play there. I am pleased with what we have got.
"We have got variations and we will try to use them when we see fit."
