United - Fresh Evra Attack!

Ahead of the Arsenal fixture, Patrice Evra came out with a few quotes that left him precariously placed.

Anything other than a win, after he`d questioned Arsenal`s credentials as a title winning side, would have left him open to ridicule.

In fact, we were amongst a host of sites that inferred Patrice may have been better served keeping quiet and not risking such a predicament.

As it turned out the victory might have spared Evra`s blushes but the French full back is unrepentant about his outburst.

Following the narrow win over Arsene Wenger`s side, Patrice, obviously not about to go all shy on us, has continued the debate, commenting,

"I think we confirmed what I`d said before the match."

"I think Arsenal played really well, you shouldn`t neglect that, but we were better."

"I really say that without any arrogance."

"I heard people saying that what I said was below the belt, but that wasn`t my intention. I just wanted to show how much I believe in my team, in their potential and strength."

"We know Arsenal and we know that if you don`t let them breathe - which is what the coach said before the match - then it becomes hard for them, especially at Old Trafford."

"United always show up for the big games."

"Arsenal enjoyed a lot of possession but only had one chance."

"I think our victory was really deserved, it didn`t boil down to small details. But people will have a go at me again for saying what I think."


This time we`re keeping quiet, we`re quite enjoying all this chat!

Your Comments

I don't really class this or his previous comments as an attack but more-so the inconvenient truth. It was "men against boys" last season and it is disappointing from the Arsenal fans perspective that they've gone so long without winning anything despite being constantly reassured they had the potential to do it. I'm sure if an Arsenal legend were to say it the comments wouldn't be branded as ignorant but more of a fair point.
