Patrice Evra feels Manchester United's spirit makes them tough to beat after they edged out Arsenal 2-1 at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The captain produced an impressive display in North London as United secured victory to keep themselves firmly in the Premier League title race.

They remain three points behind leaders Manchester City, who beat Tottenham earlier on Sunday, but French defender Evra feels they are well-positioned to retain the trophy.

He told Sky Sports 1: "City won against Tottenham but we had to focus on ourselves, and it was a great win today.

"We are still behind City but we have to keep winning games. I am really confident in team, everybody is working hard and when we play with the Man United spirit, it is difficult to beat us.

"It was a good performance, we want everything perfect and in the second half there were 15 minutes when Arsenal played very well.

"We kept strong, had a good shape and scored a nice goal. We got the three points and that is really important if you want to win the title."
