"I'm happy to be back and can hopefully go some way to helping the team do well," he said. "Ryan is amazing. Just to play that amount of games for a top club is a great achievement from him and he's still going strong as he proved throughout the game and, thankfully, getting us the winner in the last minute. It was almost as if it was written for him really. 900 games is amazing and to do it for one club and Manchester United is even better. To win us the game after they equalised, it was a great day for him and the team as well."
Scholes agrees with Sir Alex that United failed to hit top gear until the closing stages but the match was rescued in the nick of time and it could prove crucial in the title reckoning.
"He's probably right," added the midfielder. "I think we had a couple of openings in the first half and they were decent chances, but we didn't manage to put them away. At grounds like this, they are always coming at you if you don't get the second goal.
"It can be a difficult afternoon, as it proved with them getting their goal. We knew it was a difficult place to come and getting a start like that was great but, for one reason or another, we didn't really build on that. They managed to equalise but Ryan managed to save us."
