Patrice Evra has jokingly said that if Manchester United go on and lose their seven-point cushion to neighbours City again, then Sir Alex Ferguson will sack every one of them.

United surrendered a considerable lead towards the end of last season, which ended up costing them the Premier League title as their closest rivals edged them on goal difference.

The Red Devils secured a dramatic 4-3 victory against Newcastle at home on Boxing Day as City went down to defeat at Sunderland the same day - a result which puts the Old Trafford club in charge heading into the New Year.

French defender Evra admitted that he had never seen so many happy players in the changing room following Javier Hernandez's stoppage-time winner.

He told TV channel Canal Plus: "It was a crazy match. For football lovers, it was a great match. In the end, it was such a great release for us.

"I have never seen the players so happy in the changing room this season. At half-time Sir Alex told us if we could win this game, then we would have a big chance to be champions again.

"Remember, we were seven points ahead last term and we lost the Premier League with goal difference. If we do it again this season, Ferguson could sack us all!"

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
