Evra places blame on team, not the referee

Patrice Evra has warned his team-mates the REAL Manchester United must stand up and be counted if they are to become champions.

The Reds defender was devastated with a United performance at Arsenal he admitted simply wasn't good enough - because they didn't play the United way.

That has put their title challenge in serious jeopardy, but French international Evra has issued a rallying call, by demanding that he and the rest of the side now show their true colours.

With a place in the Champions League final also on the line in a massive week for the club, Evra is desperate not to throw away months of hard work now.

"There were some difficult decisions but I don't want to talk about the referee, the problem was Man United, not the referee. It is easy to find some excuse," Evra bluntly conceded.

"We did not play the Man United way and when we don't play the Man United way, we don't deserve anything. Maybe we were too nice because we played very well in Schalke.

"Maybe our minds were still on that game, and that's why we didn't deserve to win at Arsenal. But it is simple now - we just need to play the Man United way in the games we have coming up."
