Evra: Man Utd want to close title chase quickly

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra says they want to end their title chase as quickly as possible.

"We're nearly there," Evra told MUTV. "If we win against Wigan, it will be very important for winning the title. But it's not finished yet. Now we need a good recovery before we play our next game.

"We have a Champions League final to look forward to, but we have to put that to the back of our minds and concentrate on the league.

"The win against City was very important for the team. When you play in the league after playing in the European Cup, that can be tough. It's the Manchester derby and we are all very happy, it was an important three points. Liverpool won and went top yesterday, so we knew we had to do our job."
