Champions are set to finish the season with their lowest-ever points total in the history of the Premier League.
Premier League champions Manchester United are preparing to sick by under-pressure head coach David Moyes, despite Tuesday night’s disastrous defeat at home in the top flight to city-rivals Manchester City, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The Red Devils were easily beaten 3-0 by the Blues at Old Trafford in midweek to all but end any hopes of finishing this campaign in the top four, however, star striker Wayne Rooney has now called on fans to support the new boss.
“As a team, we need them to be strong and to understand there has been a big change at the club. We have to step up and start giving the fans something to cheer about with some good performances and wins,” Rooney said.
“It’s not good enough. We can’t lose six homes games in a season and we have to put that right, and make this a place which teams fear again.”
Meanwhile, former United defender Gary Neville says that simply throwing money at the problem this summer won’t definitely fix the problem: “The worrying thing is that people seem to think the answer is just to go and chuck another £150m at it. But I don’t know.
“It is almost as if you need to know what is wrong with the soup before you throw more ingredients in to make it better. It’s not a case of just throwing a load of money at it. You’ve got to get the signings right.”
