Marouane Fellaini got all the plaudits for his performance against United, but Nikica Jelavic played a significant role in the victory. While Felli was enjoying his evening playing against Carrick, Jela kept Vidic busy all night with his relentless running all over the park.
Jela believes the lads can have a great season and I know it's early, early days but you have to agree with him.
Jela said: "We can aim high, not only because of this victory but because we have a really good team.
"We are like one big family and we also signed some great players this summer. You could all see at the United game that we are really strong this season.
"Manchester United are strong but we killed them. David de Gea saved them. We could have really destroyed them. We can be really optimistic."
