Evans laid on an assist as Bruno Fernandes struck the only goal of the game for the 1-0 win.
He later said: "I loved every minute of it. Before the game you get a feeling, I couldn't wait, just pure excitement. Coming up here on the bus I was buzzing. That was my 200th game for Man Utd, I never thought I would ever reach that figure - the best night of my life.
"I wasn't consciously thinking I would sign [after getting the first call]. When you get to a certain age you start to wind down your career. I got the call and didn't have another option, so I just took it and tried to do my best in training and take my chance. You then just hope your body sees you through.
"It was never a thought that i would come in and be a starter, i was told that my role would be to provide competition and that is how I have approached it. With a few injuries I then had the chance to start tonight.
"They play differently here to how we did at my previous club, so I have been trying to get used to it and adapt my play. I think I slotted in well tonight and really added my experience to the side."
