Patrice Evra says Manchester United's critics should wait until the end of the season for passing judgement. "People always write Manchester United off," said Evra. "They said the same things last year. In the end we won the league by 13 points.
"Wait until the end of the season. We are strong. We have mentally strong characters.
"Every year is a challenge playing for Manchester United. It is never easy because when you put that shirt on you have the story of the club to consider.
"We have to show we love this club."
Evra has won five Premier League titles with United but his hunger for honours remains strong.
"If you calculate it, we drew against Southampton and Cardiff and were beaten at home by West Brom. If we had won those matches we would be top of the league," the 32 year old said.
"That is why we are frustrated and upset. Of course others haven't taken advantage but I only look at Manchester United.
"It doesn't matter that other teams have dropped points. The most important thing is that Manchester United don't."
