Manchester United defender Alex Buttner has insisted the club are not in crisis, despite a poor start to the Premier League season. 

United have lost three of their opening six league games, but the United left-back believes the Red Devils can get back on track. 

David Moyes' side were beaten 2-1 at home to West Brom on Saturday to cement their worst start to a league campaign in 24 years. 

And, after already losing to Liverpool and Manchester City, United have just seven points from their opening six games. 

However, Buttner, who was given a starting place in the Red Devils' match against West Brom believes United now must fight in order to get back on track. 

Speaking to Manchester United's official website and PA Sport after United's latest defeat, Buttner said: "I think we are not in crisis.

"We have lost three games but we have to focus in every game and we have to fight in every game to win.

"Of course the crowd wants to see Manchester United winning, and the players as well. If we lose we aren't happy, we want to win as well and we have to fight in every game to win. This season starts now and we can win many games. You have to trust the players and everyone. I think we can do this as a team and we're going to win games, I'm sure."

"Of course, it's very disappointing to lose the game, because we played a good game and won against Liverpool, now we lose at home against West Brom, so it's very disappointing for everyone," he said.

United travel to Ukraine to take on Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday and will be desperate to get back to winning ways. 

And the Red Devils' left-back continued by saying: "I think we missed too many chances. They scored the chances they got and I think it was difficult for us to score because they had all eleven players behind the ball. I think it was a very difficult game today and we have to focus on Wednesday's game."
