Fulham pushed United in the second-half of the visitors' 3-1 win.
"I've got to give Martin Jol's team credit as they came out well in the second half," he stated. "If you're losing, as a manager you want a reaction from the team and he got that.
"We had to weather it a little bit and they had a few chances. The changes we made disrupted it a bit as it's difficult to bring on three but I think Valencia played really, really well at right-back and might have been our best player in the second half."
