Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra hailed the spirit shown for their 5-0 win over Wigan Athletic.

Evra started at left-back but later formed a makeshift centre-back pairing with Michael Carrick in the Reds' 5-0 win over Wigan Athletic. The result moved the champions level on points with league leaders Manchester City..

"This is the United spirit: you can play everywhere," Evra told MUTV. "If you want to win, you have to accept it. You can see Antonio Valencia playing right-back as well. Only because United play like a team..

"The team is the star, not only one player, that's why you can put me and Michael Carrick at centre-back; we're going to win because it's the team effort and team spirit. That's why I'm confident..

"I've said that from the beginning - in six years playing here - the Man United spirit... no one team has got that spirit. This is United. This is why I'm so proud to play here."
