Man Utd boss Ferguson not panicking over lack of goals

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson isn't panicking after one goal in two games.

Following defeat to Burnley, Ferguson told MUTV: "Hopefully we get as many (chances) on Saturday. Michael Carrick had what I thought was the best chance when the ball was squared to him in the box but he decided to take a touch on the ball and lost the opportunity.

"Michael Owen missed a great chance in the first half, Ryan Giggs had one in the second half and Wayne Rooney had a couple of chances."

While lamenting a "bad performance" by his own team, Sir Alex praised Burnley and their supporters.

"You can't deny them their victory. Every member of their team worked their socks off and the fans were fantastic, they got behind them all night, cheering every kick of the ball. To play Manchester United on their return to the top division after a long time, it was a great occasion for them."
