Patrice Evra has claimed jealousy got the better of Arsenal as Manchester United wrapped up the Premier League title with Saturday's goalless draw at Old Trafford. The French defender was targeted for rough treatment by the visitors following claims that United's Champions League semi-final victory over the Gunners was like 'men against babies'. Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas appeared to take a measure of revenge by fouling Evra in quick succession, prompting referee Mike Dean to book the latter. But the 28-year-old told the Evening Standard: 'They did not understand my humour. I like teasing. During the game the referee came to tell me he was going to protect me and that I should not make mistakes. 'Maybe they are jealous because we are champions and qualified for the Champions League final.'
