Darren Fletcher has dismissed suggestions of dressing room unrest at Manchester United following their recent poor form.

• Okwonga: United must be bold to avoid fourth straight loss
• Delaney: Moyes must throw off shackles to be a success

Quoted by the Manchester Evening News, Fletcher insisted the players are behind manager David Moyes, who has come under pressure after three losses in a row in all competitions.

"I’ve not seen that at all, to be perfectly honest," Fletcher said. "I’ve seen a group of players who are trying to take on board new ideas and trying to support the new manager.

"Yes it’s a little bit different, it always is when a new manager comes in -- they are always different and bring their own style.

"You can see the manager’s ideas and it’s up to us players to start applying them on the pitch."

Fletcher added that the squad is determined to turn their form around, as United prepare to host Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday.

He said: "We feel we have that character but it’s easy talking about it. We have to go out there and do it. The players are determined to do it, I know that for a fact. I’ve seen it in the dressing room. I see how much they are hurting.

"I see the hurt in the dressing room, I see players determined to do well, training extra hard and trying to put things right. I don’t think it’s a lack of effort."
