Nemanja Vidic says the Manchester United squad are moving on from their shock loss to Manchester City in the FA Cup semi final, with the double firmly in their sights.

“We have played many games in the last few weeks and the next one is against Newcastle away, which is always a hard game to play,” the Manchester United defender said.


“We must forget the City game now and concentrate on winning the title. It will not be easy but we have to perform, play good football and try to win the league.”

Manchester United looked certain favourites against City at Wembley on Saturday, however a goal from Yaya Toure and red card for Paul Scholes ensured the chase for the treble wasn’t meant to be.

“We had two or three chances in the first half but didn’t score the goal," Vidic said.

"All they had were shots from distance but their goal has cost us the final.

“We didn’t play as we should have in the second half. It was more open, they played a bit higher up the pitch and scored a goal.

“We had a few good situations from the right side which I think we should have done something with but we didn’t.

The Manchester United captain said that concentration was a big issue for the squad, and something they will work on in preparation for tomorrow’s clash with Newcastle.

“We talked a lot about concentration, but today we didn’t concentrate enough.”
