Jonny Evans admits he was delighted to score his first goal for Manchester United after setting the Premier League leaders on the way to a 5-0 thrashing of Wolves.
The defender, who was handed his debut in 2007, was making his 119th appearance for the Red Devils at Molineux when he put the champions ahead midway through the first half.
Evans applied the finishing touch to a well-worked corner and he conceded there was a sense of shock to have finally broken his duck for the club.
"Yeah, that [stat] doesn't sound too good! I'm just delighted with the goal," the Northern Ireland international told MUTV.
"Michael Carrick put it on a plate for me really. There's no point me having a celebration [planned]. I just ran off and a few of the lads were laughing at the expression on my face.
"It was pure relief and a bit of shock really. I've kept the shirt today and that will do for me."
Antonio Valencia produced an impressive display against Wolves on his return from a month on the sidelines and Evans praised the winger's contribution.
Evans added: "He's been superb all season. He's been unbelievable actually. He's got everything his locker.
"Him coming back was probably a bit of a gamble in terms of the fact he's been out for a month or two but he's such a hard worker, I'm sure he's kept himself in really good shape."
