Manchester United skipper Patrice Evra has warned the club's army of critics that next week will not mark the "end of an empire" even if they relinquish their Premier League title to Manchester City.

Relegation-threatened QPR must avoid defeat at the Etihad Stadium next weekend to give United any hope of retaining their crown. With the title seemingly slipping away, there has been intense scrutiny of United's players considering Sir Alex Ferguson's men established an eight-point lead just five games ago.

But Evra is not convinced a major overhaul is required, and said: "I know that if we don't win the league then a lot of people will say this is the end of the empire and ask how we will survive. But there is a lot of talent at this club."
