After United’s win, courtesy of a Fernandes volley Manchester manager Erik ten Hag to TNT Sports: "The team spirit was big. The battle, the fight together. You saw a team defending with 11. Following the rules and being disciplined.
"It's about winning. The last week a lot was against us but you have to turn that and it's only up to us, and we knew that. The team acknowledged this and we have seen the answer on the pitch.
"Hopefully it gives us confidence. It's only one win. Tuesday is the next game."
