Manchester United defender Patrice Evra expects the champions to improve their form away from home next season.

The Red Devils won just five matches on their travels last term, unusually throwing away points in the later stages of matches on a number of occasions, noticeably at Fulham and Everton.

Fortress Old Trafford proved to be the difference in the title race for Sir Alex Ferguson's side, with 18 victories out of 19 helping the club to a record 19th English league title ahead of runners-up Chelsea.

"The problem we had was our away form. I just don't understand why we didn't win more games away from Old Trafford," the French international defender told the Daily Mirror.

"We just didn't play the same way we did at Old Trafford. It was our home form that won us the league. Just imagine if we can start winning away - we could win the league by 15 points.

"We have to resolve the problem with our away form. As I said, I don't know why it happened this season but next year we will make sure things change."

Evra was also quick to pay tribute to the Manchester United supporters for their efforts last season, helping the club break Liverpool's long-standing record of dominance in English football.


The left back is also confident that the club can stretch their advantage over Kenny Dalglish's side, and sees no reason why a 20th title can't come to the club next season.

"Every time we went to a restaurant or walked down a street this season the fans wanted to talk about it," he continued.

"But we are not finished yet. This is just the beginning. I know Manchester United can win more titles and we just have to keep doing that. What has happened is a great achievement but we have the quality players to win more than the 19 titles."
