Evra insists Man Utd defending not THAT bad

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra insists there's no reason for panic at the back.

Even though almost all his team-mates, and most importantly his manager, have expressed concern at the manner of United's defending, he has none.

"The confidence of keeping a clean sheet is good," he said.

"I am a defender. I don't like to concede goals. But I am more bothered about winning games and I know when we have a big game the defence will be strong.

"Maybe it sounds bizarre but I feel we were weaker defensively last year even if this season we have conceded more goals.

"I know sometimes it is about concentration and we can do much better but it does seems the opponent scores every time they shoot. I am not worried about the goals."
