Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insisted Manchester United were still heading in the right direction, but the manager is eager for improved results.
The Premier League giants have won just three of their past 16 competitive games ahead of hosting Leicester City on Saturday.
Their one win this season came on the opening day, an impressive 4-0 beating of Frank Lampard’s Chelsea.
But that match was followed by 1-1 draws against Wolves and Southampton and a disappointing loss to Crystal Palace.
Despite that run, Solskjaer – who took over in December last year – sees no need to change his approach at United.
“There’s always pressure when you’re here, but of course I’m confident in what we’re doing,” he told reporters.
“We’ve got a plan and the performances haven’t told me that we need to change direction. Results, that’s a different matter, but when you concede three goals from four chances, there’s not a lot you can control.
“There are games we should have won. We know that, but that’s another matter. We can control how we play, how we practice and how we prepare.”
