Not many visiting goalkeepers have as quiet an evening as Bernd Leno did at Old Trafford.
Our No 1 was largely untested against Manchester United on Sunday afternoon, thanks to an aggressive and assertive defensive performance by the outfield players in front of him.
And Leno was delighted after securing his fourth clean sheet of the season.
"First of all it was a very important win for us when you look at the table," he said. "It's been a long time since we won away against a team from the big six, and as well at Old Trafford. It's been 14 years I think, so too long but finally we've done the job.
"It was a very collective, strong performance from us. Our players were brilliant and I think everybody had the right attitude and mentality to win. It was very hard for Man United to create chances.
"At the end of the day, this is the key. The collective performance and defensive work were really important tonight and I think we've worked on that. You can already see that it's much more impressive than it was one or two years ago.
"It's a long, long process and we still have a lot of work ahead of us. We need consistency. This season we've had a lot of good games but also some games where we could have done better. We'll keep working on that though.
"We're all doing a great job and the most important thing is that we stay grounded, we know where we come from and hopefully it goes in the same direction."
