Derby win 'not so special' - Evra

Patrice Evra

France defender Patrice Evra claims it will be nothing special for Manchester United to beat Manchester City on Wednesday - because they have bigger ambitions than getting the better of their local rivals.

The teams go head to head in the Barclays Premier League at Eastlands with the visitors only three points above their mega-rich hosts.

Quoted in several newspapers, Evra said: "If we win it's a good result for Manchester United. But it will be normal - it will not be so special. We need to win every game now. We don't just need to win against City - we are looking to win the league."

He added: "When we start the season we think about winning every game.

"I can say it would be nice to beat City because it's a special game. It's the derby and everyone wants to win.

"But it's not the priority. The priority is to win the league but make sure we don't lose the derby."

Evra claims City are all talk and need to prove themselves on the pitch.

"They always say that [they are bigger than us] and they never beat us," added Evra of City, who have spent more than £250million on players since Sheikh Mansour's takeover in September 2008.
