David McGoldrick claims Sheffield United are not panicking over their dreadful start to the season.
Chris Wilder’s Blades have lost their first four Premier League games and McGoldrick’s goal against Arsenal is the only strike they have managed.
United, who finished ninth last season, face Fulham at Bramall Lane in a high-noon relegation shoot-out on Sunday and McGoldrick insists they are close to turning their narrow losses into wins.
“We’ve just got to keep going and get back to what we’re good at in both boxes, keeping the ball out of the net and scoring goals,” said the striker.
“We’ll get back to it, there’s no doubt about that. We’re four games in and there’s no panic button being pressed yet.
“We’ve got to take it to the next game. We went to Arsenal with the mentality of getting something.
“We knew we were in the game, but we had a sloppy period and got punished by a top side.
“We haven’t been at our best, we know that, but we’ve been in most of the games.
“We had a sloppy six minutes in our first game against Wolves and got punished, the Villa game… I can go on, but we’re still in games.
“If we up our levels, which I know we can, we’ll be able to fight our way through this league again.”
