Evra: We've learned our lesson

Published Add your comment

Patrice Evra insists Manchester United have learned their lesson and plan to ignore what Manchester City get up to this season.

United's 2-1 win over Liverpool on Sunday briefly took them 10 points ahead of City, who responded by beating Arsenal at the Emirates to close the gab back down to seven. That means it is less than the eight points City hunted down in the space of four matches at the end of last season to secure their first title since 1968 and deprive United of their 20th.

Yet the feeling at Old Trafford remains that the wound was self-inflicted, caused by too much attention being wasted on what was happening down the road. "This year we are focusing more on ourselves whereas last year we were more worried about City," Evra told Canal+. "There was too much focus on what they were going to do in their next game."
