Patrice Evra believes it is too early to talk about Manchester United challenging for the Premier League title this season.

The Red Devils have managed to close the gap on Premier League leaders Arsenal to seven points after a run of four successive wins in December.

I don’t want to talk about the title. I just want to talk about the next game

David Moyes’ men have been touted as potential title challengers following their recent string of results ahead of a New Year’s Day clash against Tottenham Hotspur.

However United vice-captain Evra doesn’t want the defending champions to turn their thoughts to a potential 21st top-flight crown – yet.

“The team is now playing better, we have that winning mentality and United spirit which was missing at the start of the season,” said Evra in the Mirror.

“I can see that our hunger has come back, so I’m confident, but I don’t want to talk about the title. I just want to talk about the next game, Tottenham at home. We need to make sure that we win, and that we keep the momentum going.”
