Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal was a happy man after his side eased past Everton by 3-0 at Goodison Park.
It was a much-needed performance from the Red Devils after they suffered a heavy defeat at Arsenal before the international break.
The Dutchman was also full of praise for Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Morgan Schneiderlin and Ander Herrera who enjoyed a very positive performance against the Toffees.
"I am very happy with the response of my players and I am very proud of the performance," van Gaal told reporters.
"I think it was an excellent performance and maybe it is the start of many, many victories.
"They [Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Morgan Schneiderlin and Ander Herrera] played very well, I have to say that, but it was not for nothing that I kept Rojo here because he was injured.
"He had not played 90 minutes for me this season, it was his first 90 minutes, and also for Phil Jones. These changes were also question marks before the game, I didn't know if they could play for 90 minutes.
"That is also why I changed Herrera. It was a fantastic performance and I was very happy with him, but I maybe need him on Wednesday so I had to spare him, and it was the same thing with [Bastian] Schweinsteiger.
"I am a very happy coach because I have seen a lot of good individual players in my team. That also gives confidence for the matches against CSKA Moscow and Manchester City.
"That [the Juan Mata substitution] was tactical and I was very happy, I have congratulated him [Lingard] with a good performance in the second half. He didn't lose any balls, one pass to Wayne Rooney maybe, but that is the only pass I can remember, and he did his defensive work very well so I am very pleased with his performance."
