Evra makes Reds case for the defence

Published 8 Comments

Patrice Evra has claimed Manchester United have defended better this season than they did last even though they managed only their fourth Premier League clean sheet in yesterday's 2-0 win over West Brom.

Given the Red Devils had 10 shut-outs by the same point last term and are currently only five adrift of the 33 goals they conceded in the entire campaign, it seems an odd thing to say.

"The confidence of keeping a clean sheet is good," Evra said. "I am a defender. I don't like to concede goals. But I am more bothered about winning games and I know when we have a big game the defence will be strong."
