Danny Welbeck was pleased to end his recent drought after scoring his 10th goal of the season during Manchester United's 5-0 thumping of Wolves.
The England international had gone nine games without a goal prior to Sunday's trip to Molineux, but snapped that sequence by sweeping home Antonio Valencia's cut-back just before half-time.
The 21-year-old insists the priority has always been on United picking up three points, but conceded he had been aware that he had not scored in almost two months.
"Before the game, I actually thought I do need a goal," the striker told MUTV. "Thankfully, it came.
"But you can't let these things play on your mind, you just play your normal game and, as long as the team keeps winning, that's the main thing."
United's victory at Wolves was an 11th away from home this season and Welbeck is unsure why the champions are much improved after winning just five times on their travels last term.
He added: "I couldn't really say. I don't really know. We come away and have performed well, passed the ball around and really attacked teams.
"We're Manchester United and we come to away grounds and want to win every single game.
"We looked to come here and get the three points and it's good to get five goals and regain some of the goal difference [on Manchester City]. It's a big stage of the season for us and I'm pretty delighted with that."
