Alex Buttner (right): Tough start for United in league

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."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
