Patrice Evra insists Premiership leaders Manchester United plan to ignore what Manchester City get up to this season and simply concentrate on their own game. "This year we are focusing more on ourselves whereas last year we were more worried about City," Evra told Canal+.

"There was too much focus on what they were going to do in their next game.

"But this year it's about us. By having a good season, we will become the champions.

"We finished last season with the same number of points as the champions and it is obvious we are stronger than last year given the addition of players like Van Persie and Shinji Kagawa."
