United striker Carlos Tevez, who was not involved in the altercation, said: "During our post-match work, Evra received an insult from a Chelsea worker and my team-mates merely demanded an explanation. This was the problem and from that moment these men just wanted to attack Patrice.
"Obviously it's normal that we defend our team-mate but within a few seconds all the United players were surrounded by stewards. I think the security cameras will show the provocation we received. I have never seen anything like this in my two years in England. We will happily give our version of what happened."
