David McGoldrick insists that no-one at Sheffield United is pushing the panic button just yet despite their poor start to the new Premier League season.

The Blades have gone into the most recent international break bottom of the table after four defeats from their four league games to date.

United also went out of the Carabao Cup on penalties at Burnley, while McGoldrick's consolation goal in defeat at Arsenal on Sunday was their first of the season in Premier League competition.

But McGoldrick, speaking before he linked up with the Republic of Ireland squad for their games against Slovakia, Wales and Finland, said: "We're always trying.

"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. 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."

United return to league action a week on Saturday against second-bottom Fulham at Bramall Lane.

"We went to Arsenal with the mentality of getting something," McGoldrick added.

"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 against Wolves, 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."
