Alexander Buttner happy with performance

Manchester United defender Alexander Buttner believes that he put in a good performance during Tuesday's win over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.

Manchester United defender Alexander Buttner has admitted that he was pleased with his performance during Tuesday's win over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.

The Dutch full-back made his first start in two months for the Red Devils as they sealed top spot in Group A with a 1-0 victory at Old Trafford.

Despite being given few chances at the club following his arrival from Vitesse in 2012, Buttner believes that he put in a good display for the team on this occasion.

"I think I did well in my first full game for months," he told United's official website. "I make sure I am always ready. Sometimes players get injuries so I always train hard to make sure I'm ready to play."

Buttner and his teammates continue the defence of their Premier League title on Sunday when they travel to Aston Villa.
