David Moyes believes United can win it

FC's Gab Marcotti says nobody knows for sure about David Moyes' job security.

David Moyes believes Manchester United are dark horses to win the Champions League after their 3-0 victory over over Olympiakos at Old Trafford saw them into Friday's quarterfinal draw.

United were able to overturn a 2-0 deficit from the first leg -- replicating the scoreline of their famous victory against Barcelona at Old Trafford on March 21, 1984, in the Cup Winners' Cup -- to keep alive their chances of winning a major trophy this season.

The triumph sees them join Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund in the last eight and, though Moyes accepts his side are unlikely to be favourites to progress, he feels they are capable of producing an upset.

Asked whether United can win it, he told his postmatch news conference: “I hope so. We will probably go into the quarterfinal tie as underdogs but I don’t see why not.

“This football club is capable of it. If we play to our capabilities, which we've not shown that often this season, I think we can be a match for any team.

“This club has history in the competition. It knows what to do at this stage. We’re not shocked to be in the quarterfinals -- it's something we do regularly. We will try to get into the last four now.”

Moyes’ position had been under significant scrutiny going into the match, and ESPN FC had been informed that key boardroom figures had turned against the manager following Sunday’s 3-0 home defeat to Liverpool.

However, the Scot told Sky Sports after the game that he does not believe his position has come under threat.

“I'm not feeling any pressure from inside the club, that's for sure,” he said. “It's all coming from you people [the media] and the people around, nobody else.

“Everybody's fine. We know exactly the job I've got to do. It's a big job, probably bigger than we all expected when we first came in, but the players have been great.”

There has also been speculation that Moyes has had problems with players including Ryan Giggs and Robin van Persie, but he insists that there has never been an issue.

“I keep hearing things about 'this one's fallen out', 'someone else has fallen out' -- and I keep telling people it's rubbish, and it is rubbish,” he said. “People are trying to look for reasons why we're not doing well. The reasons are we're not just playing well enough in the games -- and that's the truth behind it all.”
