David Moyes hasn’t had many reasons to smile this season but the Manchester United boss looked in good spirits as he attended a charity dinner with his players on Thursday night.

Just two days on from their 3-0 derby defeat to Manchester City, the ex-Everton manager was joined by stars including Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Rio Ferdinand at the United For Colitis event, while former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson also made an appearance.
