Manchester United captain Patrice Evra admits Manchester City's team selection played into their hands on Sunday.

Old friend Carlos Tevez was overlooked in City's starting XI on Sunday in favour of Mario Balotelli.

"Tevez caused us problems when he came on," Evra said. "I told him before the game that I was really happy he was not going to start.

"It was a good sign for us. When he came on he put pressure on every defender and chased everywhere."
