Evra Prepared For Biggest Game

Evra Prepared For Biggest Game

Patrice Evra made a huge step towards being accapted by the fans in last season's league versus Liverpool at Old Trafford. The French defender, arrived from Monaco in January, was fouled right before the final whistle, and from the resulting free-kick Rio Ferdinand headed in the only goal of the game. Evra is sure to start on Sunday against United's bitter rivals and hopes to make a great impact again.

'Manchester United against Liverpool is the biggest club game in the world,' declared Evra. 'It is pretty big in France when PSG play Marseille but nothing like this.

'The atmosphere is really special. People come up to you in the street saying 'Come on Pat' because the result is so important.

'Everyone is desperate for us to win and the noise as the game kicks off is incredible.'

The problem is, last time when a real serious yet struggling opponent visited Old Trafford in the league we lost and Gunner found their momentum what ultimately earned them five successive wins in all competition. We all hope Liverpool will not use Old Trafford as a springboard and Evra is keen not to repeat the feat of losing at home against one of our bitter rivals.

'This is our second really big game of the season and we have to do better than we did in the last one,' he insisted.

'It is far too early to say we are going to win certain competitions. But at the moment things are looking very positive and we must continue that by beating Liverpool.

'They are a hard team to play against, with a lot of good, strong players. But we have to be ready for them and be mentally prepared because every game is a big one at this club.'

Well, Evra must be prepared: there is a chance that he will be directly opposed to Steven Gerrard if Benitez decides to play his skipper on the flanks. So it seems our Frenchman will not have a quiet day in the office.
