“This is what happens when you only play for 45 minutes. The game is 90 minutes long and we deserved to lose because we only played for 45. To concede three goals at Old Trafford is not good enough when you want to win the game.”

Evra: No excuses

say our problem was inside the head.

“It wasn’t tactics or because people were tired. We couldn’t play a second half like that and make an excuse about being tired. It is just about our head. We didn’t start well and we have been punished.”

Looking to the future, Evra insists United have made a positive start to the season but says his team-mates must replicate their second-half performance against Tottenham in forthcoming matches against CFR Cluj and Newcastle.

“We have to be positive. It's not a bad start to the season. We won at Anfield, which we didn’t do last season, even if they played much better than us. We still have a lot to do, but we have to forget that first half against Spurs.

“I hope it was just an accident and we can get back the winning mentality in the Champions League and against Newcastle.”
