Sir Alex takes heart

Sir Alex acknowledged, "They brought on Aguero who's always a threat and maybe we can look at ourselves for the space we gave him for his goal but nonetheless he is a good finisher."

Kompany's own goal was initially credited to his United counterpart Phil Jones, who forced the issue by meeting Robin van Persie's free-kick delivery to the far post. His involvement in the equaliser capped a fine display by the versatile England defender.

"He was tremendous," praised Sir Alex. "He's a fantastic player, the boy. He's not had a lot of football at centre-back but today he's come in, into a difficult situation when some of the other centre-backs are injured, and, like we expected, he was very good.

"There were some terrific performances tonight – Robin van Persie was fantastic – so there were a lot of pluses in that respect."
