The midfielder won praise from coach Jose Mourinho after the triumph.
He remarked: "We didn't play very well in the opening 20 minutes, but I believe we did after that. It's tough to concede a goal at the start of a game, but we showcased character.
"It's difficult to play a perfect home game after playing badly in two consecutive fixtures. This result has helped us recover our confidence. I personally felt great. I try to make good use of the chances I get.
"I believe referees should correct their mistakes and decide fairly both for us and our opponents. They have to be more coherent in their decisions."
