Man Utd 1-2 Arsenal, March 9, 2015

Wembley. To get the goal was good for me but it was all about the team performance tonight.

on the reception he got…It was a great reception. It was hard for me but I tried to be respectful.

on being the match winner…It was about being professional, keeping my focus and motivation. I kept plugging away and then got on the end of Antonio Valencia’s backpass, beat David de Gea and got the winning goal. I’m just really pleased we’re through to the next round.

on playing against his childhood team…I stayed professional and I was just doing my job. To be able to get back on the scoresheet and get through to the next round is the most important thing.
