Chris Wilder predicted a goal for Jack O'Connell in Saturday's game against Aston Villa.
The big, popular defender headed United in front after just six minutes in the victory - it was his first goal since March 2017 in the victory over Millwall in League One.
"The manager said before the game that I was due a goal," Jack said. "The goal settled the nerves and it has been a long time coming, I know that I need to add more.
"It could have been more, we had some good chances, as a team, we could have put the game to bed a little earlier than we did."
He added: "The international break comes at a bad time for us after a few wins, but we will rest, recover and come back even stronger."
