This infographic, produced exclusively for Bleacher Report by our friends at Squawka, compares David Moyes' first season in charge of Manchester United with the inaugural campaigns of some of the Premier League's most famous managers.

Moyes' numbers are compared against those achieved at the first attempt by Jose Mourinho (Chelsea), Rafael Benitez (Liverpool), Arsene Wenger (Arsenal) and Carlo Ancelotti (Chelsea), and with fascinating results.

Perhaps the most interesting stat is Moyes' record against the top six clubs, which sees his win percentage at just 12.5 percent. Mourinho's was a remarkable 70 percent in his first season in charge of Chelsea, with Ancelotti's at 60 percent.

Moyes' overall win percentage is given perspective by the fact it's higher than that achieved by both Wenger and Benitez in their debut seasons at Arsenal and Liverpool respectively.
