Patrice Evra has described Manchester United's recent stumble in the Premier League as 'a little accident'.

United's bid for a hat-trick of titles has been checked by back-to-back defeats by closest rivals Liverpool and away at Fulham.

The defeats have seen United's lead at the summit reduced to one point, although the reigning champions do still have a game in hand.

The international break means the Red Devils do not play again in the Premier League until Sunday 5th April when Aston Villa come to Old Trafford, live on Sky Sports 1 & HD1.

Evra is currently away with the France squad and the full-back admits his immediate focus is on the 2010 World Cup double-header with Lithuania.

"In three years, it is the very first time that I have experienced two defeats in a row," Evra told L'Equipe.

"I am sure it is just a little accident.

"Anyway, I have to forget about the club now. I will think about Manchester again after the two matches against Lithuania."
