Albion are in the relegation zone and haven’t won all campaign since returning to the top flight but still made a real battle of our first home Premier League win of the season.

United took the lead with a second-half retaken penalty from Bruno Fernandes, but Slaven Bilic’s side were still in the game right up to the final whistle.

And our Serbian midfielder reckons United have to start finishing teams off to avoid nerve-jangling finales.

“When we score first we have to go on and kill the game as soon as possible, especially in the Premier League. We have to improve on that,” Matic told MUTV.

“Every team has quality, every team is dangerous. One-nil is not enough. They almost scored, they had one hit the crossbar. So they were always dangerous.

“We have to make sure that next time we have more concentration in attack and make sure we try to kill the game early.”

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.”
