London, Sep 23 : Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson has warned Chelsea that the real United is just around the corner.
"We've had a tough start. We've had to go to Anfield - and we threw that game away in terms of goals we conceded - and now we've had to come to Stamford Bridge," Ferguson said.
"We've also been away to Portsmouth. It's difficult to say where this 1-1 result places us but what I do know is that come October we'll be fine. The players will have plenty of minutes on the clock, the level of our game will go up, Ronaldo and Berbatov will have games behind them - you'll see us at our best then," he added.
United have just five points from four games following their 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge and are seven points off the top with a game in hand, The Sun reported.
They have drawn at home to Newcastle and lost at Liverpool but Fergie is bubbling with Cristiano Ronaldo fit again and Dimitar Berbatov settling in.
Ronaldo has been a sub in the last two games and could get a run-out in tonight's Carling Cup tie at home to Middlesbrough.
