Patrice Evra disagrees with Bruno Fernandes claim about how good Man Utd were

Patrice Evra disagreed with Bruno Fernandes' claim that Manchester United were good throughout Friday night's 1-1 draw with Tottenham.

The Red Devils started slowly against their top four rivals at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and found themselves a goal down in 27 minutes.

Steven Bergwijn put the hosts in front with a powerful effort that David de Gea failed to get a strong hand to and flapped into his own goal.

After the break United moved through the gears, and the introduction of Paul Pogba turned the tide, with the Red Devils drawing level from the penalty spot.

Fernandes spoke to Sky Sports after the match, and said that while United want to win every game, the result is a positive one.

"I think we did very well, it was a difficult game," said Fernandes.

"We started good with our ideas but they scored on the counter, I think we were all the time in the game.

"We scored, we had a lot of chances to score more. It's not enough but we want to win every game. We're not happy but it was a good result.

"I think the game on the whole was good, after a long break we did very well."

But Evra took issue with the Portugal international's claim that United were good throughout the contest, before hailing Fernandes' individual performance.

"I enjoyed that game but I don't agree with him. I think United were better in the second half but he is my man of the match," said Evra.

"What a game again, he scored a penalty, every touch he had, he played really simple. I'm starting to be in love with this player.

"With the substitutions Ole did a great job. Paul when he come on you could see the difference, the quality, he just destroyed Dier for the penalty.

"I felt United were much better in the second half than the first half."
