"I have had a couple of chances this season and haven't managed to score," Vidic told MUTV. "This was probably the best moment to get my first goal of the season with less than ten minutes to go. We've won, so I'm happy.
"It's not just two players, everyone played well in defence and that helped us get the result. Yakubu is strong and Johnson is quick and likes the ball in the channels. But we knew about them and stopped them from getting chances.
"With our ability going forward we knew that we'd be able to score, and we did. We came for the win and got it. Sometimes you have to make sure you don't lose a goal.
"It's always difficult after the international break," he added. "We knew that it would be hard against Everton and that we'd need to play a compact game. We had to do that today."
The Serbia international defender concluded: "We started badly this season, but now we have three wins in a row and I think we're improving every time. I hope that in our next game we improve again. I'm looking forward to the rest of the season."
