‘If we don’t beat them then we’ll be in trouble’ - Manchester United’s Patrice Evra highlights importance of Chelsea clash

France international insists Sir Alex Ferguson's men are not worries following their defeat to Arsenal, but says they must beat the Blues if they want to win the title

Patrice Evra believes that Manchester United must beat Chelsea on Sunday if the Red Devils are to collect their 19th Premier League title this May.

Carlo Ancelotti's men travel to Old Trafford only three points behind the Premier League leaders with the sides on joint goal difference following United's 1-0 defeat away to Arsenal.

With only three games of the league season remaining for both teams, a victory for Sir Alex Ferguson's side would all but secure the title, which would see them become the most successful league side in English history.

However, Evra has insisted that failing to beat the current champions would spell trouble for his team.

Speaking to MUTV following the loss at the Emirates, the full-back said: “We have our destiny in our hands.

"We have a massive game against Chelsea. If we want to win the title then we have to beat Chelsea – it’s as simple as that. If we don’t beat them then we’ll be in trouble.

“We just need to play the Man United way. I am not worried because we know we didn’t do the things we normally do against Arsenal. We have three games left and need to win every game. Every game is a final.”
