Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted Manchester United need to grind results out during the current congested phase of the season.

United head to Reading on Saturday evening having maintained their place at the top of the Barclays Premier League thanks to their 1-0 win over West Ham on Wednesday. It was not pretty though as once Robin van Persie had scored the fastest goal of the season after just 33 seconds, United laboured their way to victory.

"It is the time of the year when you grind results out," he said. "The internationals are out of the way and we play our last group game in the Champions League next Wednesday, which gives us further opportunity to concentrate on the league. It is a big moment for us."
