The Northern Ireland international produced a towering display alongside Rio Ferdinand at the heart of the back four, but Evans was quick to salute the contribution of everyone in a red shirt after the game.
"A clean sheet is all you can ask for as a defender," he told MUTV. "It doesn't matter how you play, if you get a clean sheet you're happy. It was a nice to get it [on Sunday] - it was a solid performance from us.
"It really helps when the team is working really hard around you as well. The front players and the wide men work hard to make things a lot easier for you.
"We created a lot of chances and felt we were a bit unfortunate not to go in [at half-time] with a couple more goals [under our belts], but we weren't able to kill them off in the first half," he added.
