Evra also had words of praise for star striker Robin van Persie after his hat-trick sank Villa and enabled the celebrations to start in earnest.
"I think, when the boss bought Robin van Persie, everyone knew he was a top-class player when playing for Arsenal," he stated. "But to play with him is just unbelievable.
"He came here with a lot of humility. I remember one game when he missed a penalty but scored a hat-trick [at Southampton] and he said sorry to everyone in the dressing room. That shows you the character and personality of Robin van Persie.
"I'm really pleased with him and I hope he wins the top scorer in the Premier League and, why not, also the Player of the Year."
