Sir Alex Ferguson was pleased with his side’s performance against Newcastle, especially with goals for Anderson and Tom Cleverley.
Anderson, 24, opened the scoring for Manchester United with a powerful drive from 25 yards in the 2-1 victory over Newcastle.
Speaking with the Official website, Sir Alex Ferguson said:
“I’m very pleased, first of all, given the tie was an all-Premier League one and Newcastle are probably a stronger team than us physically, we played some fantastic football. We kept on playing our football and persevered with that and had good composure in our game.
“I was really pleased with that and I think we deserved to win. Newcastle are a very powerful team so it’s good to get through that one.
“I’m very pleased for Anderson and Cleverley – both of them were terrific strikes. The second goal was a great bit of football and Tom has done well to sidefoot the ball home. It was a really good performance.”
