Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic believes that the club can find positives in their displays so far this season, despite failing to score in consecutive Premier League games for the first time in seven years.
United fell to a 1-0 defeat at Liverpool on Sunday to hand David Moyes his first defeat as boss in a week he'd quickly like to forget, following a 0-0 draw with Chelsea at Old Trafford six days earlier.
Vidic has conceded that United are disappointed by their failure to find the net in successive matches, but believes it's far too early for Red Devils fans to be worried about their prospects this season.
The Serbian defender feels that United should take some heart from their solidity for the majority of both games against sides challenging at the top of the table, while admitting quick improvements need to be made when the squad return from international duty.
He told The Sun: "I would not say we are worried, but we have to improve some areas. Not scoring is not like us. But it is still the beginning of the season and we have so many tough games to play, some tough games.
"In the first game against Swansea, we scored four. But I don't judge matches only on goals. From every game you can take positives and negatives, even from this one. I think both games against Liverpool and Chelsea were really solid and we didn't give our opponents anything."
United are back in action on September 14 against Crystal Palace, with their Champions League campaign beginning three days later when Bayer Leverkusen visit Old Trafford.
