Sir Alex: Now watch us goThe Reds may have started the season slowly but United manager Sir Alex Ferguson insists top form is just around the corner.

United's 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday leaves the Reds with just five points after four games. But there's no need to panic, according to the manager.

“We've had a tough start,†Sir Alex told Sky Sports. “We've had to go away to Anfield – and we threw that game away in terms of the goals we conceded – and now we've had to come to Stamford Bridge.

“We've also been away to Portsmouth, which is a fixture a lot of teams will find difficult, just as we have down the years. So it's been tough.

“It's difficult to say where this 1-1 result places us but what I do know is that come October we'll be fine.

“The players will have plenty of minutes on the clock, the level of our game will go up, Ronaldo and Berbatov will have games behind them... you'll see us at our best then.â€

The manager was also quick to point out that although United linger in the bottom half of the Barclays Premier League, the Reds have played one less game than most of their opponents.

“The press worked themselves into a fever over the weekend about the possibility of Chelsea going nine points clear. Of course, you have to reember we have a game in hand, which is important.†:)
