Patrice Evra is supremely confident that Manchester United will bounce back if they happen to lose this season's Premier League title.

The Premiership is in the hands of crosstown rivals Manchester City who need to beat QPR at home on Sunday whilst United travel to Sunderland in the hope that the Eastlands outfit slip up.

Evra says that some people think the 'empire' will begin to crumble if they cannot beat City to the title but he feels the club can return to the champions list immediately.

"I know that if we don't win the league then a lot of people will say this is the end of the empire and ask how we will survive," he said.

"But there is a lot of talent at this club. We've had to deal with a lot through injuries and losing experienced players last summer and it's never easy to find a solution immediately."
