I was convinced we were going to lose this game, so quite happy with the way things went.
We really should have lost thanks to the sheer number of chances Valencia made but the Spanish leaders just couldn’t convert any of them. Not a day that Vidic will put on his wall of fame.
But Berbatov seemed to have woken up that morning thinking he was Carlos Tevez with the sheer amount of running he was doing. That’s not always a good thing, especially as he was a lone striker constantly out of position. Nani was bad, so expect him to score a hat trick at the weekend. Carrick shouldn’t have played, obviously not fit.
And Hernandez did something in a game that meant something. Very, very important goal and if we can get six points out of the Turkish crowd, qualification is assured.
