MANCHESTER (AFP) - Manchester United manager David Moyes found himself beneath an increasingly intense spotlight on Wednesday amid press reports of fan dissent in the wake of his side's defeat by Manchester City.

United's 3-0 loss at Old Trafford on Tuesday was the cue for an angry reaction from some of the club's supporters, who have seen their team disintegrate under Moyes's stewardship.

Several British newspapers reported that a group of United fans are planning to send a plane over Old Trafford during their game against Aston Villa on Saturday pulling a banner calling for him to be sacked.

Arrangements are being made for the plane to carry a message "Wrong One - Moyes Out" as a response to the "Chosen One" banner that has hung inside the stadium since the former Everton manager was appointed as Alex Ferguson's successor.
