"It was a good cross from my best friend Ji-sung Park, I think maybe I'll get him a big present for Christmas, maybe a car."

Patrice Evra.

Quotes of the week

The Red Devils moved level on points with leaders Chelsea on Saturday courtesy of their 2-0 victory over nine-man Wigan and the Blues' shock defeat at Birmingham.

United remain unbeaten in all competitions so far this season, despite not producing the performances they are capable of, with the Old Trafford victory over the Latics another unconvincing affair.

And left-back Evra, who opened the scoring against Wigan with a rare goal on the stroke of half-time, has called on his team-mates to show their ability in Saturday's clash with Blackburn.

"I said before the game that if we beat Wigan and Blackburn next week we would be top of the league, and I am still confident of that," he told MUTV.

Aggressive

"But I think the team can give much more than we are giving right now.

"We are still at the top of the league, but against Blackburn we need to play from the first minute, not just at the end of the game.

"We are Manchester United and we need to be more aggressive and score more goals - and to bring back the way United play always."

Evra, whose last goal for the club came way back in April 2007, saw substitute Javier Hernandez double the Red Devils' lead after Wigan had Antolin Alcaraz and Hugo Rodallega dismissed.

"I don't think my son was even born the last time I scored a goal for United," Evra joked.

"It was a good cross from my best friend Ji-sung Park, I think maybe I'll get him a big present for Christmas, maybe a car."
