Ferguson: Win Was Comfortable At Swansea

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said his side were comfortable despite only beating Swansea City 1 goal to nil today at the Liberty Stadium.

It was far from an excellent display from the title-holders, and they had Swansea full-back Angel Rangel to thank for their vital winning goal early in the first half.

Scott Sinclair had the best chance in the entire game for the hosts, he miss-hit a chance at the back post but Ferguson said that apart from that opportunity, his side's 1-goal lead was comfortable throughout the game.

'Swansea have got a great home record and it's something we thought about before the game, it meant we had to defend well and we did that other than the miss they had in the first half,'

'Other than I thought we were comfortable defending, but they're a good football team, they keep the ball well, and the concentration we showed today is exactly the type of concentration we need back in the team because a few weeks ago there was a genuine criticism of our defending.

'Apart from that one miss we were comfortable. We should have done better with a few chances on the counter, particularly when Chicharito squared for Wayne [Rooney], but in the context of form it was a good result.'

'We've had a wake-up call. Over the years [defending] has been an integral part of our success. Michael Carrick, for instance, was magnificent today - that was a big, big performance from Michael. Darren Fletcher and Antonio Valencia both also did very well and it's important I can make changes at this time.'
