Sir Alex hails courage

to, he's happy the Dutch striker is in contention after seven United games without a goal.

"There’s a case for it being an own goal but it was a wicked drive by him," Sir Alex said. "It was a fantastic shot – I don’t know whether it was going in but it was certainly too much for the goalkeeper to handle.

"Scoring for Holland in the midweek internationals helped him. When strikers don’t score for a few games they think they’re never going to; when they do it can set them off again."

Sir Alex was speaking to Sky Sports and MUTV.
