Moyes defiant on Euro hopes

David Moyes insists Manchester United can overturn a two-goal deficit when they host Olympiakos on Wednesday in the Champions League.

United manager Moyes has come under increased pressure following Sunday's 3-0 defeat at home to Liverpool and there has been speculation he could be axed if results do not improve in the coming weeks.

Moyes has rejected the speculation and insists he has the full support of the club's board but he is well aware of the importance of Wednesday's last-16, second-leg tie.

The Greek outfit won the reverse fixture 2-0 thanks to goals from Alejandro Dominguez and Joel Campbell but Moyes insists his side believe they can win by a big enough margin to secure a place in the quarter-finals of Europe's top competition.

"If we can go through it would be a massive lift for us," he said. "We know we have got ourselves in a poor position being 2-0 down but we have a lot of belief and we have to make it show in the game.

"We need to start giving something back now. We need to start performing together, me, the team. We need to make sure we work together to get a performance and a night to be remembered.

"And we'll do everything we possibly can to make that happen. We'll leave nothing behind on the night, hopefully, and we'll try and make sure we somehow get through to the next round."
