The Red Devils have conceded 21 goals in 15 Premier League matches so far this season and have shown the propensity to concede first in matches.

United will head into the derby against Manchester City at the weekend on the back of a 4-3 away win against Reading on Saturday, and Evans wants them to start improving defensively.

"We have to eradicate the mistakes," he is quoted as saying in The Mirror.

"We don't want to concede goals and give teams a chance to beat us or even take points off us.

"But whenever we go a goal or two behind we never feel like we are out of the game."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
