Patrice Evra has claimed that no other team has the same “character and personality” as Manchester United.

The Red Devils are on their way to a 20th top-flight title and can move a step closer to glory with victory over Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Monday night.

And defender Evra does not feel that Sir Alex Ferguson’s men receive the credit they deserve for a never-say-die attitude, after United twice came from behind to draw with West Ham last week.

“The funny thing is because it is Manchester United people don’t give us a lot of credit. They just say ‘oh, OK, they escaped, they came back,’” Evra told United’s website.

“If it is another team they say what great character they have, what a great team they are. Because it is Manchester United they just say we have escaped.

“We did not escape. This is character. This is personality. That is why we are here. That is why I hope we are going to win the title.

“You have to accept the criticism but I don’t see anyone with more character than this team.”
