Coleman is looking for a positive reaction when they face United on Sunday following their loss to Fulham last weekend.
"We have been playing really well at home lately and unfortunately for us, we weren't at the races against Fulham," he told Sky Sports News.
"We'll be looking for a reaction from ourselves more so than Manchester United."
Colemans says Europa League qualification remains a target.
"That's got to be the target [seventh place] between now and the end of the season, it gives you something to play for," he added.
"If we can get a good result on Sunday, then we can have a final push for it."
