Manchester United belief gives Moyes hope

KINGSTON UPON HULL, England - Manchester United manager David Moyes believes his side's traditionally strong spirit means that they cannot be discounted from the Premier League title race.

United battled back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Hull City on Thursday and record their third consecutive league victory.

After an inconsistent start to the season, in which they suffered five league defeats, United have started to close in on the upper reaches of the table.

"I don't think there was anyone in the ground, when we went 2-0 down, who thought the game was over," Moyes said.

"I think most people were rubbing their hands thinking, 'We're in for some game here.'

"That tells you what Manchester United have got and, hopefully, tells you something about David Moyes. My teams have always been committed and trying to win the games.

"All the games at this time of year are tight games, difficult to call. All we can do is keep knocking away and hopefully we'll be in there come the end of the season."

Striker Wayne Rooney scored his 150th Premier League goal for the club in the victory at Hull.
