Premier League 2013/14: Manchester United 3 - Hull City 1

Ryan Giggs:

"We looked like scoring goals and creating chances. In the first half, we were a little bit slow, so I just reminded the players that the tempo needed to be quicker and they reacted well to that. They’re all good players and all of us have let ourselves down this year. We haven’t played to the level that we’re capable of this season, but we did that. I said that it can’t just be for one game, it has to be for longer than that. Every time you play for Manchester United you have to stay at that level, and they have to keep to these standards against Sunderland."

Juan Mata:

"In the first half it was a bit difficult and we played a bit too slow. In the second half I think we showed what Manchester United can do at home. We tried to score, we tried to be a powerful team and we played in the opposition half of the pitch. I think we did that really well."

Phil Jones:

"It is nice to get a win at home and send the fans home happy, give Giggsy the start he desperately wanted and you could tell the lads were right at it. In the first half we were probably a bit slow but in the second half we really got to grips with the game and we put the game to bed."

"We gave away two terrible goals. But I thought prior to that we passed the ball brilliantly well. We kept the ball and had great control of the game. What we couldn’t do was create enough chances. They were two poor goals to give away, both on the break. We didn’t have a final through-pass or the final finish when the chances came, and there weren’t very many of them. So that was the disappointing part, that we couldn’t do that. The job is to win football matches. There is a lot talked about style, but it’s more important to win, and we didn’t do that."

Getting ready for Everton.

"There’s no shame going out to Bayern Munich - they are a good side. The players have played really well. We’ll show the quality we’ve got, re-group and start building towards being back in the competition."

Getting ready for Bayern Munich.

"For me, it is a pleasure to play with the likes of Chicha, Shinji and Adnan. They are quality players so it is easy to play alongside them. We did it on the pitch and we created some chances to score. I am very happy for Chicha as well, I think he deserved his goal and for Adnan after coming off the bench."

- Juan Mata (Premier League 2013/14: Newcastle United 0 - Manchester United 4)

David Moyes:
"I thought when Shinji, Juan and Adnan were on the field, there were some technically gifted footballers out there."
Anders Lindegaard:
"The whole midfield did a great job, Darren balanced it well, and Shinji and Juan really had some good play going on between them. It was joyful to look at from behind the whole team. The movement between Juan, Shinji and Adnan was slick, and they looked like they enjoyed themselves. It was nice as a United man to see it."

"It’s difficult when we are not playing too much. To give a performance like this as a whole team is pleasing because you see players like Shinji, me and Juan Mata, Antonio Valencia at right-back and Adnan Januzaj coming in. It was a good performance and a good result."

- Javier Hernandez (Premier League 2013/14: Newcastle United 0 - Manchester United 4)

"I thought we played very well. Some of the individual performances were fantastic, and I thought that as a team we played really well. We needed a good performance, but we didn’t start the game as well as I would have liked. In the opening 20 minutes I thought our passing was sloppy and not as accurate as we’d like, but once we got into a rhythm I thought we played really well."

Champions League 2013/14: Manchester United 1 - Bayern Munich 1

"The players played really well, so we’re delighted with the performance. I was a bit disappointed that we conceded a goal in the end, but I thought it was a really good performance. The fans were great, there was a great atmosphere inside the ground, but I’m really pleased with how the players played."
