Evra Points at Another Reason

Whilst Sir Alex Ferguson vociferously pointed at the un-just penalty as the reason why, despite a good performance, we didn`t take all three points, Patrice Evra had another reason why things didn`t go to plan.

Evra, although admitting the penalty decision was poor, pointed at a factor that has affected our results over the past few weeks - goals.

This is what Evra had to say,

"If you want to win the league, you have to score more goals."

"No, it wasn`t a penalty. I think it was a difficult decision against us but the referee was responsible and he went to the linesman to say, 'Are you sure?`

He said: 'Yes, it`s a penalty` and the referee trusts his man. We have to be more focused on how many chances we missed."

"I`m very frustrated we didn`t win. Against Arsenal, we created eight chances and scored eight. Here, we had maybe seven chances and only one goal. That`s football."

"There`s a long way to go and I`m confident if the team keeps playing that well, I`m convinced we`re going to win the league."

Is Evra right?

Was our finishing slack or was 'Lady Luck` just not smiling in our direction on Saturday?
