Manchester United fans have called for defender Jonny Evans to get the axe at Old Trafford after he endured a torrid time at the Britannia against Stoke City yesterday afternoon, reports the Express.

The Northern Ireland international, who started alongside the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones at the heart of the side's defence yesterday, struggled against Mark Hughes' side.

In fact, after the Red Devils conceded from a corner, Evans almost gifted ex-United player Mame Biram Diouf a goal when he hesitated to clear the ball. 

Thankfully for Evans and Co., Colombian hit-man Radamel Falcao equalised for Louis van Gaal's side as the club maintained their unbeaten run in the Premier League. 

The United faithful, though, were not impressed with Evans as they slammed his poor performance in the 1-1 draw.

A number of Red Devils fans took to Twitter to express their dismay at Evans, who has struggled to hit top form throughout the campaign so far. 

In fact, there have been doubts over a number of United's defenders throughout the course of the season.

After the trio of Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra departed the Old Trafford outfit this past summer, Evans, along with the likes of Smalling and Jones have failed to prove their credentials. 

Struggling back-line 

In fact, the defenders have all struggled to maintain their fitness this term, but will be hoping for a stronger second half of the season as the Red Devils go in search of glory.

Evans, then, may well be handed his opportunity to impress in United's FA Cup third round clash with Yeovil Town this weekend. Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal is expected to make changes for the showdown as his side go in search of securing their place in the next round of the competition. 

There's no doubt about it, the Dutch boss will see the FA Cup as his only opportunity to secure a trophy this season, with his side nine points off the pace at the top of the Premier League table.
