"If it goes to the end of the season, the last thing we want to do is lose the league on goal difference. It would be a horrible way to lose it."

Evans wary of title woe

Jonny Evans says Manchester United are focused on overturning Manchester City's goal difference advantage as the race for the title hots up.

The Reds had scored five at Wolves with almost half an hour still to play but were unable to rack up any more goals against the 10-men hosts. Nevertheless, the impressive victory margin means City's goal difference is now only superior to United's by three.

"I think, when we came out for the second half, the main aim was to try and cut the goal difference by getting as many goals as we could," Evans declared to MUTV.

"It's hard sometimes and we took our foot off the gas a bit maybe but we still managed to nick another two goals. Of course, it [the goal difference] is massively important. Especially as we could be only one point ahead. If it goes to the end of the season, the last thing we want to do is lose the league on goal difference. It's almost like another point really and it'd be a horrible way to lose the league."
