Evans: Man Utd players feel we have to beat ref also

Manchester United's players fear they not only must they beat the opposition this season, but also the refs.

United defender Jonny Evans says the players feel they're not getting any 50:50 decisions this term.

He told Sky Sports: "We are usually quite good with referees. Usually, you get a lot of teams who do a lot of play acting but I don't think that's the case with Manchester United.

"I think we do try and play fair, there's not many of us who roll around and try and cheat and sometimes the little 50/50 decisions you'd hope would go your way haven't really been going our way lately and I think that's maybe disheartened a few of the lads but that's football and sometimes you've got to beat the referee as well and that's what we are going to try and do."
