Moyes minded to make changes

David Moyes believes his Manchester United players haven't done enough yet to convince him he doesn't need to change a winning team.
The Red Devils boss is in a better frame of mind after his team's impressive 3-0 showing at Aston Villa last Sunday, with that victory certainly settled the ship after successive Premier League home defeats to Everton and Newcastle.

Moyes, however, will tinker with a successful line-up to try and get the better of Stoke City in the Capital One quarter-finals at the Britannia Stadium on Wednesday evening.
The locals will certainly be sensing the chance to turn the screw on United, having come close to beating the Red Devils when they lost 3-2 in the league at Old Trafford back in October.
Winger Ashley Young is set to come in for Ryan Giggs and Rio Ferdinand is likely to replace Jonny Evans in central defence.
Striker Wayne Rooney could also be rested with Javier Hernandez partnering Danny Welbeck at the spear of the United attack.
Moyes admitted: "We've got enough players to use. The way for any player to get an extended run is by playing well and doing a job.
"We've not been that consistent where you could ever say anybody has necessarily said 'I've put my name down to be there every week'."
United are 1.36 to reach the League Cup semi-finals at the expense of Stoke and are 7.00 to win by a 2-0 scoreline in 90 minutes, with Hernandez 5.00 to open the scoring.
