The reigning Premier League champions have begun the defence of their title in fearsome fashion, winning all five games so far this season with a goal difference of +17.

Chelsea were the latest side to succumb to United when losing 3-1 at Old Trafford, but Evra insists he was not wholly satisfied with the Red Devils’ performance.

“Maybe for the first time, we didn’t control all the game,” Evra told MUTV. “Five wins is a good start but I always want more. I’m happy to win but I hope in the next league game, against Stoke, we create more and not try to rush things.

“I think we tried to rush things and gave the ball away too easily. It’s why I’m not so happy. I’m happy because there’s a lot of positive things and we scored three times against Chelsea but, if we want to win the league and win every game, we have to perform better than on Sunday.”

Evra, who captained United as they moved two points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, was pleased to have provided a spectacle for the fans but admitted it was “strange” to see a divergence from the normal tight encounters between the two sides.

“It was a great game to watch for the fans,” Evra said. “But it’s the first time I’ve played against Chelsea and seen an open game like that. It was a very funny game but, in the end, we won. We were lucky to be in front 3-0 at half-time so I said to the players: ‘Forget the first half and try to play like a team in the second half’.

“It was like a boxing fight, I give you and you give me back. It was really strange. I have a lot of respect for Chelsea. People talk about City and us but I always say Chelsea are our most difficult opponents as you can see.

“They didn’t come here just to defend but they attacked and looked to score goals and create chances. I couldn’t believe the goal didn’t go in from Fernando Torres. Maybe God was with us.”
