Manchester United must secure 10 consecutive victories in order to prove they are back in business, according to left-back Patrice Evra.
Speaking before Saturday's 3-2 Premier League win over Stoke City, the France international told MUTV when asked to sum up the season so far: "Frustration. Disappointment about ourselves. I always blame myself for the players when we are not doing well.
"The problem is not that we are doing badly but we are not doing something good enough. We lost our consistency and we have to regain that really quickly. If we still want to win every trophy, that is the main word.
"We can't win one game, draw the next or lose the next one. Every game is important. We want to win two games in a row, three games in a row but I say: When are we going to start to win 10 matches in a row? That's when we can say Manchester United are back in business."
Despite the Red Devils' below-par start to the campaign under Sir Alex Ferguson's successor David Moyes, Evra insists that the team's preparation has been up to standards.
"For the moment, we are not [yet there]," the 32-year-old added. "We are working very well and the training sessions are very good. The stuff before the game is very good. We are doing everything right - it's just the results that are missing.
"I'm not lying to people when I say we are doing the right things because it's the truth. I trust what we are doing and what the manager has set up. We have to win the games, just make sure we win that 10 games in a row. After that, we can maybe play beautiful football but, now, we have to win. We don't have any choice but to win."
Evra hit the headlines last week after suggesting that he would not be signing a new contract when his current deal expires at the end of this season, but the Frenchman clarified his comments in an interview with MUTV on Friday.
