Manchester United 2-0 Everton

Sir Alex Ferguson’ s post game quotes:

“We have got to win our games anyway, so it didn’t matter what happened to City on Saturday,” Sir Alex told Sky Sports. “That’s the way we should look at it and I’ve been saying that for week. If we concentrate on our own game then we’ll be okay.

“I was going to make about seven changes but when I got the result, I felt this was a more important game for us because it could give us a comfortable lead. We can make changes later on in the season. It is realistic; we knew that if we got a good result today then we’d be in a positive position.

“The first half, I thought they dominated for 20 minutes in terms of possession and had a couple of chances from corner kicks. They had some great deliveries from Leighton Baines but we saw it through. In the second half, we played much better without scoring the goals. We were in control.”
