Evra demands show of character: This not Manchester United

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra is demanding a show of character from teammates after their 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra is demanding a show of character from teammates after their 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

United gave up a 2-0 lead at Old Trafford to drop more points in a disappointing start to the season.

"We need to start killing games off," a passionate Evra told MUTV. "We need to take our chances and score more goals when we can. It's not like we don't have a lot of opportunities.

"When you are 2-0 up you should go on to win the game. If you make it three or four nil that makes it very difficult for other teams to come back. But when you keep things at the same tempo and it's still only 2-0, the opposition only need to score one goal to make things difficult for you. Everyone must take their share of the blame, not just the defence.

"For it to happen once is okay, but twice... I remember talking about the same thing after we played Liverpool saying I hope we don't give away a lead again like we did that day, but we did it again today.

"We have two choices - either we accept it or we don't accept it and I think it's the moment to not accept it," he added. "We're still unbeaten, but, to me, five draws almost feels like we have lost games. It's not Manchester United. We need to work hard and show our character and I'm confident we can do that."
