Mounting injury list concerning Man Utd's Evra

Patrice Evra is concerned that the injuries which are mounting up could affect Manchester United's bid to retain the Premier League title. Captain Nemanja Vidic is ruled out for the rest of the season due to a knee injury and Rio Ferdinand, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones all missed the Boxing Day victory over Wigan Athletic, while Jonny Evans was forced off at half-time in the 5-0 win and is likely to be out for two weeks.

"I am a little bit worried because we need everyone if we are going to win the league," said Evra. "It is starting to get annoying.

"It is not the first year we got so many injuries. Two years ago I played with Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher at the back.

"The most important thing is that we won but I hope everyone gets fit because Blackburn is another big game and we need all the defenders."
