Man Utd defender Evans: We know all about Mourinho mind games

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans says the players aren't bothered by the barbs coming from Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.Chelsea are at Old Trafford on Monday.

"It's all just mind games, really," said Evans. "It's maybe his way of trying to unsettle us, but we don't read too much into that kind of thing and, as players, we laugh at that kind of thing.

"Mourinho's a good manager and I am sure he'll make a big impact on them. But it's maybe going to be over the next month or two before we realise who's going to be challenging for the league.

"Managers have a big influence and that's why they are in such high demand. That's why Mourinho is in high demand - because he's been so successful."
