Monk said: "We did change. We just felt they were overloading us a little bit in the middle, so we went to a diamond after 10 minutes in that second half.
"I think that helped us – we ended up getting two quickfire goals, and at the end we made a couple of little changes. They started to go long to Fellaini and we made a change there.
"I thought we saw the game out really well. I don't think they created too much.
"It was a good tackle from Ashley Williams on (Wayne) Rooney which could have been a dangerous situation, but apart from that I think we had the best chances in the game.
"The character we showed today – OK we didn't play our best, but when you don't do that the thing to do is to make sure you do your jobs properly, and we did that."
