Villa were beaten 2-0 by Fulham on Sunday to put an end to a five-game unbeaten streak.
They now have to turn their attentions to this weekend's fixture and try to take three points at home against a faltering United side.
Republic of Ireland international Clark is now calling for a week of positivity and to forget about the Fulham result.
He told Villa's official website: "We were on a high. We have had a few good results. We were unbeaten in five. But we won't let this get us down too much.
"It was one of those frustrating games where we couldn't break them down. They put a lot of men behind the ball and did frustrate us.
"But we will move forward and now focus on the next game. We will go again at the weekend."
Clark did however have some time for reflection and admits the Fulham defeat was deeply disappointing.
He said: "After the midweek game - the win over Southampton - we were obviously looking to pick up another three points. It wasn't to be.
"When you go two-down just before half-time, it's a bit of a blow.
"But we wanted to come out, create some chances and nick the next goal. It would have turned in our favour and put pressure on them. But that wasn't to be.
"We didn't really create that many scoring opportunities which was frustrating. We had few chances. But if one had gone in it might have been a different story.
"We had a penalty appeal with five to go which should have been given. It was a disappointing afternoon."
