Evra: You have to fear the wounded animal

Manchester United defender Patrice Evra is anticipating another difficult game ahead of Sunday's trip to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal.

The 29-year-old French full back knows three points will go a long way in determining who will finish the season as Barclays Premier League champions, but doesn't expect Arsenal to roll over without a fight.

"You have to fear the wounded animal,"said Evra.

"It is all or nothing for Arsenal so that is a danger. They will want to show they can still win the title.

"We have a good record at Arsenal but statistics can change so quickly. Our record at the Emirates will hurt them and they will want to do something about it."


Arsenal find themselves in a poor run of form that has seen their title aspirations falter at the final hurdle yet again this season.

With just one win in their last seven Barclays Premier League outings, Arsene Wenger's side will be looking to prove a point to Manchester United, to show that they still have title credentials of their own.

"Sunday is a massive game for us. It is a great opportunity. There is still a lot of pressure on us," added Evra.

And with Chelsea's recent return to form, a late title charge from the Blues will also be in the back of United's minds, and can be used as a motivation for victory on Sunday.

"If we lose and Chelsea have beaten Tottenham on Saturday, they will only be three points behind and they have to come to Manchester.

"That is what we have to think about now."
