Marcus Rashford was relieved to return to winning ways as Manchester United won 2-0 at Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
Rashford netted along with Anthony Martial as United bounced back from drawing 2-2 with Southampton on Monday.
The England forward told BT Sport: "Every game for us now is a big game.
"Before the Southampton game we were scoring goals for fun, then that Southampton game was a bit more difficult.
"These kind of victories you get a lot out of as a team. We've had to work hard to get a result.
"We're improving and that's the reason why we've scored so many goals in the last few games."
Palace boss Roy Hodgson praised his side's performance but was ultimately disappointed with the result and some of the decisions that went against his men, telling BT Sport: "I think the most difficult thing to take is that we played so well and still lost the game.
"If you ignore the last 10 minutes, when Patrick Van Aanholt had to go off and we had to readjust, up to that point I thought we played really well.
"I thought that we could have so easily been leading in the game and once again we find ourselves on the wrong end of a result after a performance like that. Against a team of Manchester United's quality it is very, very hard to take.
"There were a couple of issues that could have so easily gone our way."
