The first Old Trafford league win of the campaign at the fifth attempt following defeats by Crystal Palace, Spurs and Arsenal, plus a draw against Chelsea, ensured that United climbed up the table into the top half and ninth spot.
“We said before the game we had to win. We had to get the three points to go close to the teams at the top of the league,” said Nemanja.
“We are happy with the three points but not our performance. We have to do better.
“But wins are the most important, of course, because at the end of the season nobody will ask you how you played, if you were amazing. The most important is you collect points.
“Manchester United want to win titles and our aim is to be in first position and we will do everything for that. We can do that only as a team.”
