Evra on Man Utd defeat: There are no excuses

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra says there are no excuses for their dismal 3-1 defeat at Everton. The result helped Chelsea to extend their lead at the top of the table to four points thanks to their win at Wolves.

"We are all very disappointed and upset," the Frenchman told MUTV. "I'd like to give the excuse that we are very tired after the amazing night in the San Siro. But I won't give that excuse. I think that we didn't believe in the win. We had the opportunity to win.

"We were tired, a lot of players were tired, but I think in our mentality we lost the game. It's not about not having spirit, it's that we didn't believe enough. We did believe. We play every time for the United shirt and we want to win, we believe until the last second. But we didn't believe enough. I am very frustrated. It was not an easy day and it was a tough place to go. It was a tough time to play Everton as well. But I think it was just about having a bit more belief in getting the victory."
