Jose Mourinho hailed Marouane Fellaini as the cure to Manchester United's defensive ailments following another impressive display from the midfielder in a narrow 2-1 victory at Watford.
Fellaini's header set-up what proved to be Chris Smalling's match-winning volley and also did well in his position as a shield to United's often-nervy back line.
The 30-year-old signed a new deal at Old Trafford over the summer and came into the side for the win at Burnley ahead the international break, with Mourinho's side having lost to Brighton and Tottenham before visiting Turf Moor.
"We made defensive mistakes against Brighton and against Tottenham," Mourinho said.
"Against Brighton we didn't deserve to win, against Tottenham I think we did - but (in the two games we conceded) six goals and made defensive mistakes.
"Then we go to two matches away, difficult matches. I felt that my central defenders need, especially in this moment of a bit of instability, they need somebody to support them and give them the first wall, physically.
"Marouane is giving us more than that, he is giving that but also quality and simplicity. He is playing simple and well. I'm really happy."
