Van Der Sar's Draws On Positives

It is almost unheard of for an attack that consists of talent such as Carlos Tevez, Wayne Rooney, and Dimitar Berbatov would struggle to score in Manchester United's start to the season. In five games they have only found the net on three occasions, all in the Premier League.

Dutch goalkeeper Edwin Van der Sar - recently praised by Danish legend Peter Schmeichel for changing the Red Devils' fortunes on his arrival - believes that despite their inability to find goals, there is no need to be concerned, because if they carry on performing as they have been the goals will eventually arrive.

"It is a missed opportunity on one hand, but on the other hand we played well," he is quoted by Sky Sports as saying.

"After the disappointment from the weekend [against Liverpool], it was important to get the confidence back... I think we created enough chances to win the game easy."

Manchester United face another tricky task on Sunday as they travel to Stamford Bridge in an attempt to kick-start their own season by knocking Chelsea off their stride.
