Martinez's men built on last weekend's first home success of the season against West Ham with another three points in north London as Ben Watson snatched a 56th-minute winner.

The Spanish manager praised the determined mentality of his side and says he could not have asked for more from their display.

"It was a perfect team performance," Martinez told Sky Sports.

"That's probably the most pleasing aspect, not the result - because obviously that's what we wanted - but the manner of the result. The performance was as good as it gets away from home.

"I thought the concentration of every player was magnificent and more than anything the mentality.

"To win at home then come here and show that intent of wanting the three points is probably the most pleasing aspect of this game.

"It's important that we keep creating chances and showing that team mentality of keeping a clean sheet."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
