…really? Who would have thunk it?
Ferdinand, "Just as we didn't think we had the league title wrapped up when we won our first four games last season, we are not going to say we've lost it because we haven't won in our first three this time.
"Of course it is disappointing and we'd obviously prefer to have more points on the board. We wanted to make a good start and we haven't. But we just have to put it behind us and move on. There's no point looking back, it's about the future. Once we get a win under our belts more confidence will come.
"There is plenty of character at United but we need to get that victory as soon as possible. Hopefully, it'll come against Spurs on Sunday."
