London: Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has asked his teammates to be ruthless and play attacking football against Chelsea inorder to clinch a record-breaking 19th Premier League title.
Defeat against Arsenal has reduced United’s lead at the top of the Premier League to just three points and, even though they had a 15-point advantage over Chelsea just nine weeks ago.
“We have our destiny in our hands. We just need to play the Manchester United way. I have to say, I am not worried. We know we didn’t do the things we normally do against Arsenal,” The Telegraph quoted Evra, as saying.
“We didn’t play to the United way and when we don’t play to the United way we don’t deserve anything. Hopefully it was an accident,” he said.
With Premier League matches to follow against Blackburn and Blackpool, a draw would probably suffice at Old Trafford on Sunday, although Evra has the mindset that United must simply win their remaining three games.
“We have a massive game against Chelsea,” he said. “If we want to win the title then we have to beat Chelsea. It’s as simple as that. If we don’t beat them then we’ll be in trouble. We have three games left. Every one is like a final. We need to win them all,” he said
Evra is adamant that United must take the game to Chelsea and play with the penetration that was strangely lacking in their 1-0 loss against Arsenal on Sunday.
