The Mirror says United slumped to an embarrassing defeat to local rivals City and afterwards Moyes gave his players a blast of former boss Sir Alex Ferguson's infamous 'hairdryer' treatment.
Moyes was in no mood to spare his under-performing United players from his anger after revealing he told them their abject display was unacceptable and that he wants a reaction.
"I've made them aware of that," said Moyes. "But if there is ever was a group of players I'd expect that from it would be a group of Manchester United players.
"I think the way they have been brought up, the way they have been bred with the manager previously, they react, that's what they do, and that's what we'll do here."
