They said times would be tough when David Moyes replaced the retiring Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

The word used by many pundits was "transitional"—yet since Moyes took the reins in July, it has been more a case of "upheaval."

Having suffered five Premier League defeats already this season, the defending English champions find themselves eight points off table-toppers Arsenal, who have played one game fewer.

Eighth in the league, United have now been faced with the stark reality of top-four consolidation rather than title retention.

But why has it gone so wrong for United? Does the problem rest solely with Moyes, who has yet to prove himself at this level, or should some of the players shoulder the blame?

With a January transfer window fast approaching, next month is a chance for Moyes to get rid of some of the deadwood at the club and stamp his own imprint at Old Trafford in this post-Ferguson era.

And here, B/R takes a look at five problem areas David Moyes must target in January.
