Ryan Giggs says Manchester United do not consider themselves to be underdogs for Tuesday's UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg against Bayern Munich at Old Trafford.

And Moyes is confident his team will be able to cope with Bayern Munich and is expecting a big performance from United. He said: "We are going into the game knowing that on our day we are as good a side as any. "We have to show it more often than we have done but I have great belief in the players. I have said that from day one and it hasn't changed. "I get the feeling they (the players) all want to play. I can tell by their training and their attitude that they are saying 'this is a big game' and they all want to play in the big games. "That's what I think that over the years the players here have wanted to do." Right-back Rafael is a doubt for the game with a thigh strain, while left-back Patrice Evra is suspended and his deputy Alex Buttner ended Saturday's game against Villa with a tight hamstring. The Dutchman did take part in an open training session on Monday, though, along with centre-backs Rio Ferdinand, Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans who did not feature at the weekend. Moyes added: "We have defensive issues undoubtedly. I won't be giving out my team today but, as everybody is aware, we will have to make one or two changes."
