Evans unhappy with referees treatment of Man Utd

Jonny Evans believes Manchester United have been on the wrong end of 50-50 decisions from referees this season. The Northern Ireland international believes United are having to beat the officials on some occasions to get results.

"We are usually quite good with referees," Evans told Sky Sports News. "I think there are a lot of teams that 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 and not many of us would roll around and try and cheat.

"Sometimes the 50-50 decisions, that you would hope because of that would go in your way, have not been really going our way lately and I think that's what has maybe been disheartening a few of the lads, but that's football.

"Sometimes you have got to beat the referee as well and that is what we are going to try and do."
