The experienced French full-back has spoken of the Manchester United players' happiness at achieving their first win at Anfield in almost five years on an emotional day
Patrice Evra has revealed the relief in the Manchester United dressing room following the 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Sunday, their first on Merseyside since 2007.
Following a lacklustre first-half showing, the away side rallied after the break with goals from Rafael and a Robin van Persie penalty cancelling out Steven Gerrard’s opener.

"It's unbelievable," Evra told MUTV. "We've been coming here for four years [almost five years], a long time and I've not been seeing a dressing room like that with smiles on the faces after the game. I want to win against Liverpool. If I play badly or play well, I just want to win and that is what we did."
The 31-year-old went on to speak of the difficulties surrounding the occasion at Anfield, which proved to be a hugely emotional one as the home side played their first match in front of their own fans since the revelations on the Hillsborough disaster were revealed.
Indeed Evra, who was at the centre of an Anfield race row following allegations that Luis Suarez racially abused the Frenchman during a fixture on Merseyside last season, believes his decision to shake the Uruguayan's hand before the match was a fitting move to the atmosphere inside the ground.
