Patrice Evra: Has helped Manchester United to remain in the hunt for multiple ho

The Red Devils remain on course to repeat their Treble-winning heroics of 1999, with Premier League, UEFA Champions League and FA Cup honours still up for grabs.

The problem with competing on multiple fronts is that the games come thick and fast, making it increasingly likely that stumbles will occur.

Evra has been around long enough to know that is the case, with it important to remain fully focused at all times.

He acknowledges that February could be a pivotal month for United - with the club set to take in league fixtures against Everton and Queens Park Rangers, a European clash with Real Madrid and a cup tie with Reading.

"It's a really important time for us," said the French full-back.

"This is the time when you have to win your games and show that we are the number one team.

"Nobody forgets the big disappointment of losing the title last season. It's really important that we just keep going because the league is not finished in February.

"We really want to show we are champions."
