thumbnail Hello,

Centre-back focused on visit of West Ham United...

Jonny Evans insists his Manchester United team-mates must focus on picking up all three points on Saturday against West Ham United rather than dwelling on the draw at Fulham last weekend.

The Red Devils beat Newcastle United in their first game of the season 3-0 but were held to a 2-2 at Craven Cottage on Sunday after Brede Hangeland scored a late equaliser.

Evans told United Review: "We should have killed the game off early on but we took our foot off the pedal and let Fulham back into the game."

Craven Cottage could be seen as a bit of a bogey ground for Manchester United having failed to win there in their last three league meetings.

Evans, who has started both of Manchester United’s league fixtures so far this season, said: "It’s always about your next game in football; you can’t dwell on the past."

United have still made an improvement on last season's opening two games. Sir Alex Ferguson's side beat Birmingham City on the opening day of the 2009-10 season before slumping to a shock defeat away to Burnley.

"Last season you’ll remember we lost at Burnley in our second game, and we still ran Chelsea very close for the league," Evans added.

"Obviously we want to win every game but it’s when you get late in the season that the games become really important. It’s still early days."
