Vidic bemoans Reds' luck

Nemanja Vidic and his Manchester United team-mates were disappointed to leave the Liberty Stadium on Sunday with just one point, but the Serbian centre-back believes the Reds were unlucky in front of goal.

Swansea's Michu cancelled out Patrice Evra's headed opener before Sir Alex's men twice hit the crossbar, had the ball cleared off the line and were denied a penalty appeal in the second half.

"We had a few chances but you have to give Swansea credit as well," club captain Vidic told MUTV. "They fought well and gave everything to get a point out of the game. Overall, I think they played well, we had a few chances and were unlucky."

Vidic, who started his first game for more than three months following a knee injury, said the Reds ultimately paid the price for a sloppy period midway through the first half.

"We started the game well but in that 10 or 15-minute spell after we scored we dropped our performance and Swansea punished us with a goal.

"They had a few good opportunities. After that, we got better and they didn't cause us many problems.

"I think we kept possession well and created a few chances. We just couldn't score a second goal."
