Holding - We could have won by three or four

The last time Rob Holding played at Old Trafford, he left the pitch on a stretcher after suffering a season-ending injury.

This was an altogether more positive experience however, playing his part in a dominant performance and helping us to our first Premier League win at the stadium since 2006.
 
The defender spoke to us after the game, and was delighted with the excellent away win.
 on the win...
Yeah, happy with the performance and the clean sheet. We've not won here in 14 years in the league so it's nice to get that off our backs. The team's just improving and hopefully we can just keep this momentum.
 on the record...
I knew it from the past two years we've been here. The last time I played here was the ACL injury, so it was nice to come here and put that to bed to come away with a win.
 on it being extra sweet because of his Manchester roots...
Yeah exactly. It's the team I grew up supporting with the family so it's nice to get a result there.
 on the performance...
Yeah we hit the crossbar in the first half and B's had that header he could've put in. On another day we maybe win that 3-0 or 4-0. Just happy to get the win and the clean sheet.
 on absorbing pressure...
United have always been experts in scoring late goals, so we knew they were going to throw everything at the goal in the last few minutes. But everyone stuck together and defended with their hearts.
 on our start to the season...
I think our performance at City was a good team performance and we just got unlucky with the result. I think now we can get that confidence from beating a top-six team away and then we can crack on.
