Manchester United will be without a number of players that are still coming back from injury against Chelsea on Monday.
Ashley Young, Luis Nani, Rafael Da Silva and Javier Hernandez are all unavailable for squad selection as they slowly come back from injury.
Moyes confirmed that Rafael will be out of action for up to four weeks with the hamstring injury sustained at the Community Shield, whilst also offering an update on the progress of Hernandez, Young and Nani.
“Rafa picked up an injury in the Community Shield game so we’ve lost him for three or four weeks
“We have one or two coming back from injury – the likes of Nani, Ashley Young and Chicharito. They’re still recovering.
“So we’ve got two or three coming back from really the effects of not having a proper pre-season because they came back from international duty a bit late. Hopefully they’ll all not too far away now.
“We’ve got a really squad here and we’re able to cope if you do get injuries. But it’s only just a case of getting then up to speed because they’ve missed pre-season.”
Monday nights fixture is by far the game of the weekend, and Moyes is keen to welcome Jose Mourinho back to the English game when he comes to Old Trafford.
“I really like Jose, he’s had great success and I’ve not seen him for a long time so I’m looking forward to seeing him,” the boss explained.
“I came (to United) for this sort of level of game, but I came to win trophies. If you are going to win trophies then you are going to have to beat teams like Chelsea and Manchester City because that’s the way our league is.
“I’m looking forward to it. It’s one of 38 league games we’ve got this season and it’s a great first home game.”
