Arsenal tackles anger Evra

Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has criticised Arsenal's players for their rough tactics in the recent league clash at Old Trafford. The two teams played out a goalless draw last Saturday, the result ensuring that United won the Premier League for a third consecutive season. Evra was left in pain and needing treatment after a tackle from Gunners captain Cesc Fabregas at the start of the second-half. The French left-back had described the Arsenal side as "babies" after their UEFA Champions League semi-final showdown and believes that some of them could have been seeking revenge at Old Trafford. "The bad challenge was from Fabregas when he caught my knee. I was very angry. I don't know why the Arsenal players did that," Evra told The Sunday Express. "Okay I said some things they didn't appreciate after the Champions League game at the Emirates. "But I don't know why some Arsenal players did that. You might miss the Champions League final because of one stupid tackle."
