While he recognises the talent Roberto Mancini has at his disposal, he is adamant the key to United's chances of success lies inside their own dressing room.
"We have to stop talking about their games all the time and keep talking about Manchester United," Evra said.
"The most important thing is that we won against Bolton.
"It doesn't matter if City win, lose or draw. After getting one match out of the way, we just have to rest and be focussed on Arsenal next Sunday.
"For us it is about United. We have to be focused on what we do and how we play and I think we are going to win the league."
