Evra on Defensive Lapses!

Evra on Defensive Lapses!

The trip to Anfield, this Saturday, is always a fixture that the nation looks forward to.

Liverpool are always keen to defeat us, even more so now we stand alone on 19 top flight title wins.

Recently, our defending has been a little bit suspect with the opposition creating far more chances than is traditional for a United defence.

Obviously, we could point out that Sir Alex Ferguson has been unable, due to injuries, to field a settled unit.

But one of those who has been playing, Patrice Evra, has ad his say on the shambles that has seen us carved apart by teams that, usually, have no right to do so, remarking,

"I want us to go back to the way we were playing before the win over Chelsea."

"We have to defend together, be very compact and not give our opponents too many chances."

"I was disappointed after the Chelsea game because they created a lot of chances and if it had finished 4-4 no one could have said anything."

"Basel was a bad performance, but we never gave up and got a point."


Anfield, with the possibility of Nemanja Vidic returning, gives us the opportunity to put matters right!

Evra is one of the main reasons we're conceding so much, most of the ogoals we've conceded have started from his side. He once use to bomb up the pitch and when he lost the ball bomb back down again now it seems he's far too interested in bombing up that when defensive duties call he casually strolls back as the left side is completely exposed. I really am hoping Vidic can solidify the defence and remind the 4 defenders who like to charge forward, namely Jones, Evra, Rafael and Fabio, that they need to get back ASAP.
