Evra sets United target

hi-res-180937412-patrice-evra-of-manchester-united-in-action-during-the_crop_northPatrice Evra has demanded United win the next 10 games in a row to get kick-start their season and to give themselves a chance of entering the festive period in a good position.

After a less than auspicious start under David Moyes, United have won their last three games, beating Real Sociedad in the Champions League, Stoke in the Premier League and Norwich in the Capital One Cup – all wins coming at Old Trafford – bringing their unbeaten run to six games in all competitions.

Evra, however, claims United need to make it 10 wins in a row if they’re to be considered serious title challengers this season.

“The problem is not that we are doing badly, it is because we are not doing things well enough,” said the Frenchman. “We’ve lost our consistency and we need to find it really quickly if want to win every trophy.

“We can’t win one game and draw the next one, or lose it. Now, every game is important.”

United travel to Fulham tomorrow, before traveling to Spain to face Real Sociedad on Tuesday and then welcoming Arsenal at Old Trafford nine days from today – the Gunners’ second big match in a row after they take on Liverpool this weekend. The Reds then face three testing trips, with away games at Cardiff and Spurs coming either side of a Champions League tie away at Leverkusen

“We [do] want to win two or three games in a row but it is when we win 10 games in a row that I will say Manchester United are back in business.

“At the moment, we’re not,” continued Evra

Evra insisted there are absolutely no issues between the players and the coaching staff, and he trusts David Moyes to ensure United will be competitive at the business end of the season.

“The training sessions are very good,” added the 32-year-old. “The staff are very good.

“I’m not lying to people when I say we are doing the right things. I trust what we are doing and what the new manager has set up. It’s just the results that are missing.

“We have to make sure we win games – even if we do it in a bad way or an ugly way.

“We need to win those 10 games. We don’t have any choice.

“After that, we can play the beautiful football.”

United’s next seven fixtures are:

PL Nov 2 Fulham (A)

CL Nov 5 Real Sociedad (A)

PL Nov 10 Arsenal (H)

PL Nov 24 Cardiff (A)

CL Nov 27 Bayer Leverkusen (A)
