Sir Alex Ferguson hailed Manchester United’s defensive stability following his side’s goalless draw at Sunderland on Saturday.

The United boss, whose side have yet to win away from Old Trafford this season, said: “Sunderland had the most chances in the game and I have to say we were fantastic defensively.

“That’s the area in which we have been leaking goals and throwing games away this season, so I am pleased with that.”

Ferguson admitted he was satisfied with a solitary point and acknowledged his side were forced to battle hard against stubborn opposition in the form of Steve Bruce’s men.

“I can’t class today’s as a disappointment because we had to battle to get the point today,” added Ferguson.

“It was a very determined Sunderland team, their home record this season has been very, very good, so I am not pleased but I am satisfied.”
