Louis van Gaal has responded to criticism of his Manchester United side after their slow start to the season.
The Red Devils have picked up seven points in four games this campaign, scoring just three goals, with one of them being an own goal.
The Old Trafford club have not won in their last two matches, and face a crunch tie with rivals Liverpool this weekend.

United's attacking play has come in for considerable criticism this season, with former stars Gary Neville and Paul Scholes voicing their concern, as pundits for Sky Sports and BT Sport.
Van Gaal responded to the criticism, saying the lack of trust shown by United legends upsets him. As per the Times, he said: “It makes me sick because they should know that it takes time."
Reports have suggested a number of Man United players are fed up with Van Gaal's boring training methods and that does not bode well only four games into the season.
Games against Liverpool are always must-win encounters for the Red Devils, but this game holds extra incentive, with the Old Trafford club looking to stay within touching distance of their city rivals, Manchester City, who have looked imperious so far this season.
The 20-time Premier League champions are already five points behind their neighbours and could find themselves eight points down, if results go against them this weekend.
Liverpool come off the back of a 3-0 defeat to West Ham and will be hoping for an improvement in Manchester, however their record at Old Trafford is poor. They have won just two of their last ten league games at United.
