The Red Devils have won just one of their last five games in the top-flight, leaving them 12th in the table after six games - eight points off the pace set by leaders Arsenal.

Dutch left-back Buttner was preferred to Patrice Evra for the home game against West Brom on Saturday, having also played the full 90 minutes in the Capital One Cup victory over Liverpool in midweek.

However, Buttner and his team-mates were on the end of a shock reverse to Albion as Morgan Amalfitano and Saido Berahino struck in the second half to hand the visitors a 2-1 victory.

"We're very disappointed to lose the game. It is very disappointing for everyone," said the 24-year-old.

"Normally we have to win this game at home but no, I don't think it is a crisis.

"We have lost games but we have to focus and fight in every game to win it.

"Of course the crowd want to see Manchester United winning - the players want that too."

Buttner has backed United to quickly turn their domestic form around, with a clash at Sunderland next up on Saturday evening after Wednesday's Champions League trip to Ukraine to face Shakhtar Donetsk.

"Our season starts now and we can win many games," said Buttner. "You have to trust the players and everyone.

"I think we can do this as a team. We are going to win games, I am sure."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
