"When you're passing the ball five yards you're fine using your weaker foot. But if you're driving into space and dribbling forward, you ideally want the ball on your good side. This season I've been able to move to the right-hand side of central defence and I think that's helped me."

Evans moving forward

during his time at United.

"That's the first time I've heard that!" he said. "When I was in Northern Ireland I played as a midfielder. But from the age of about 15, all I've done is played at the back. It was a big learning curve for me and it took me a while to get used to it.

"My first season at centre-back in the youth team wasn't a great experience for me. It was pretty similar to last season, in a way! I just had to find a way to get over that and carry on."
