Ferguson confident over United form

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson insists he is happy with Manchester United's form despite his side's struggle to score goals and their defeat to lower-league Crystal Palace in the Carling Cup.

United have won three and drawn one of their Premier League games since the 6-1 drubbing by Manchester City but have not scored more than a single goal in the league since October 1. Moreover, Wayne Rooney, who started the season with a terrific scoring run, has not hit a league goal since mid-September.

However, Ferguson is adamant that United are in form, should have beaten Newcastle last weekend, and that a trip to Aston Villa on Saturday holds few fears - United have lost only twice in 19 visits to Villa Park since the Premier League started. He said: "Our form last Saturday was excellent, we played as well as we have played all season."
