Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed he was never worried about Manchester United's progress in the wake of last week's shock defeat at Burnley.
United responded in the perfect manner this weekend, blitzing Wigan with a five-goal second-half performance that shot them up the Barclays Premier League table, behind early pace-setters Tottenham.
It puts them in good heart for a key confrontation with Arsenal on Saturday, and with Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Owen both among the goalscorers, most of the pressure that had been building up outside Old Trafford has now been relieved.
"We can't worry about these things," said Ferguson. "We are not going to kill ourselves because of it, but we're going to take reminders of it, lessons and experience.
"We all know we've got players with great experience at our club who are used to winning trophies over the years.
"We still weren't prepared for the kind of setback we got on Wednesday. It shouldn't have happened, but it did."
