The defender says being involved in high profile matches like Sunday's is exactly the reason why he joined the Reds.
"I wanted to play a part in all these big games," he explained to manutd.com. "I enjoy the challenge and am looking forward to the ones we have ahead.
"The thing that's stood out since I've joined United is the desire to win every single game. It means to everything to win at this club.
"I'm just glad to be a part of it."
