Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has said that the three points gotten against Watford on Saturday was more important than him scoring a goal.
The German midfielder's shot was deflected into the Hornets' goal by Watford striker Troy Deeney to hand Louis van Gaal's side a vital 2-1 win in the 90th minute.
"It would be nice if it was my goal but I know that the Watford player touched the ball so, for me, it doesn't matter. We won the three points and that’s the most important thing," Schweinsteiger told MUTV.
"It meant a lot to me because these sorts of games can make the difference at the end of the season. Now we have two points more, which is why I was really happy and made an unbelievable sprint after the goal where nobody could follow me so I'm very happy about that!"
The Reds had chances that fell to Lingard and Memphis, chances that should have increased the goal margin, and Schweinsteiger pointed that out.
"Memphis and Jesse played really well and we shouldn’t forget had great chances in the first half to score the second goal which would have made it easier. We didn't play with real swagger today but we showed character and fought until the final seconds."
United's next game is against PSV Eindhoven in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
