United resume their campaign in the Ukraine next week having already won their first two group matches and handily placed to seal a last 16 berth with time to spare. Having beaten AC Milan at Old Trafford in the opening leg at Old Trafford, a tired and weary United side were hammered in the return meeting at the San Siro, allowing the Serie A giants to move on to the final, where they subsequently accounted for Liverpool.
"Losing against AC Milan last season was very frustrating," said Evra.
"I don't like making excuses but we had players missing through injury and suspension and it affected us.
"This year we have even more quality, so our chances are good.
"Just because we have signed quality players it doesn't automatically mean we will do better. But I do feel as though we have a point to prove after last season's frustration."
