â€śI donâ€™t like to compare myself to those guys,â€ť Evans told ManUtd.com.
â€śI look at certain aspects of their game â€“ Vidic is unbelievable in the air and competes for every ball, which is something Iâ€™d like to add to my game. Meanwhile, Rio is so composed: he makes things look easy, rarely does he look fazed in a game.
"People will always make comparisons, but I just try to concentrate on the things Iâ€™m good at."
As you might expect, the approach Evans takes onto the pitch is dictated by his central defensive partner.
â€śWhen Vidic is beside me I usually let him attack the ball. I sometimes let Rio do that too but he's so quick and is a great reader of the game, so I tend to attack the ball a bit more when Iâ€™m with him. I definitely try and adjust my game depending on who's next to me.
â€śThere are no two better defenders in the world than the two we have here. We have a good balance here with Rio, who is like the Rolls-Royce, and Vidic, who attacks the ball so well.
â€śBut I try to learn things from everyone. Wes Brown is a great competitor, for example, and can play anywhere across the back four.â€ť
