Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has insisted that the Premier League champions have kept their faith within each other despite the club's poor start to their title defence campaign.

The Red Devils have accumulated only seven points from their first six games of the Premier League season - only managing two wins out of six.

However, Vidic believes David Moyes' side will come good. 

Speaking to reporters, the United captain said: "We have to accept it has not been a great start.

"We have not been getting the performances we would have liked and we also have to be realistic enough to accept we have made some mistakes.

"This team has a lot of potential and we are working really well. Sometimes the results don't come. Sometimes the performances don't come. But I am really positive. The most important thing is to defend right. If we defend well, I think we have a really good chance to win trophies." 

Many factors could be influenced by the initial performance of the Red Devils, which can include the poor summer transfer activity the club had witnessed, having missed out on numerous targets.

United have had a positive start to he domestic cup, claiming a victory at Old Trafford against bitter rivals Liverpool in a 1-0 win. United also beat German side Bayer Leverkusen in their opening Champions League match 4-2 and drew 1-1 in Shakhtar. 

United have the potential to upset the odds and turn their season around, it's just a matter of time for when they can get their campaign back on track.
