United must avoid accidents - Evra

20 September 2010 04:30

Patrice Evra fears Manchester United are going to give themselves a heart attack with their wasteful ways.

Already under fire for throwing away winning positions at Fulham and Everton this season, the Red Devils shot themselves in the foot again at Old Trafford on Sunday when they allowed Liverpool to claw themselves level from two goals down. It took Dimitar Berbatov to rescue them by becoming the first United player to score a hat-trick in the fixture since Stan Pearson in 1946.

"If we keep bringing that nervousness to the situation we could finish the game with a heart attack," said Evra.

"It wasn't that I was worried at 2-2. I was actually very unhappy.

"If we had drawn that game, how could we then say we were going to win the league.

"We had an accident at Fulham. We had another accident at Everton. But if you do it again it is not an accident. It is simply that you do not want to win the league.

"I don't know why we make the job hard when it could be so easy.

"We have to make sure that kind of thing doesn't happen again. We need to make Manchester United solid.

"It is not only about the defenders. It is about everyone.

"We conceded two goals in a match (against Liverpool) where the opposition didn't even have a shot on target (before they scored). That type of thing should not happen."
