Obafemi Martins: "It was a fantastic result. Even though we didn't win, we picked up a result that many teams would like at Old Trafford.

"We tried our best to win the game and were disappointed not to - but we will take a point.

"It was unfortunate for us, but that's football sometimes.

"We worked very hard during the rest of the game and we picked up a big result.

"I was happy to get my first goal of the season in my first game. It was important for me, but more so for the team.

"We wanted to get off to a good start and that has helped do that."
