Evans: United must stay at the top

Jonny Evans does not see the point in worrying about the lack of transfer activity at Manchester United this summer because he knows the Red Devils will be expected to compete for all the major prizes anyway.
After the first friendly, the first tour and the first match at Old Trafford, new boss David Moyes takes charge of his first showpiece occasion on Sunday when United take on FA Cup winners Wigan in the Community Shield at Wembley.
Surprisingly, they will do so having made just a single addition to the squad which secured a record 20th title last term, and Uruguay Under-20 international defender Guillermo Varela is hardly the big name most Red Devils fans expected.
Much energy and debate was expended in the doomed pursuit of Cesc Fabregas of course, while interest in another Barcelona midfielder, Thiago Alcantara, petered out as he opted to join Bayern Munich.
Evans though, remains unperturbed.
"I am not one for bothering about other teams," the Northern Ireland international told MUTV.
"You go out on a weekend and just try to beat the team that is in front of you.
"I am not saying I don't see the headlines but I don't worry about them too much, or worry about us not signing players or that other clubs are signing them.
