Evra backs `hungry` Man U to make `five league wins in row` against Tottenham
Johannesburg: Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has said he believes that his team has got their hunger back and are looking to make it five league wins in a row against Tottenham Hotspur on New Year`s Day.
The Premier League champions moved up to sixth with a narrow 1-0 win over Norwich City on Saturday, marking the half-way point of what has been an inconsistent season for the reigning champions, who are still adapting to life under new manager David Moyes.
According to Sport24, France defender Evra said that his teammates have now recovered their hunger and are looking forward to mounting a charge in 2014 in a bid to retain their title as they are playing better, have a winning mentality and Old Trafford spirit, which was missing at the start of the season.
However, Evra further said that he and his teammates are focusing on the upcoming clash with Tottenham at home, adding that they need to make sure that they win and keep the momentum going.
The report mentioned that United enters the second half of the campaign eight points adrift of leaders Arsenal and three points behind fourth-placed Everton in the race for Champions League qualification.
United striker Wayne Rooney missed the win over Norwich with a slight groin strain, while his fellow forward Robin van Persie is nearing a return after missing a number of weeks with a thigh strain, the report added.
