Wayne Rooney is pleased with how United did today in the 1-0 defeat away to City after playing with ten men for an hour.
We responded well and defended well [after falling behind]. I felt for long periods of the game we were the better team. We took control of the game with 10 men and created the better chances. We were unfortunate not to get anything out of the match and we’re disappointed to leave with no points after a great effort. We’re working on different things, which a lot of us haven’t been used to. We’re certainly heading in the right direction. We’re progressing each week and playing some nice football. We need to turn that into results and I’m sure we can do that if we keep working, keep learning and keep doing what the manager wants from us.
