Man Utd defender Evans wary of 'powerful' Newcastle attack

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans is wary facing Newcastle United's attack tomorrow.

Between them, Demba Ba (11) and Papiss Cisse (four) have netted 15 times this term and both have previous history against the Reds. Cisse scored in the Capital One Cup game at Old Trafford in September, while Ba struck in both league fixtures last season.

"They are both very powerful," Evans told ManUtd.com and PA Sport. "What Newcastle do very well is work the ball wide and put it in the box. They don't give you a minute and those two are powerful lads.

"A lot of their goals come that way, when they beat people in the air and the ball is floating around in the box. The goal record between them is what got Newcastle to the position they finished in last year."
