Evans: We're Too Open

Manchester United defender Johnny Evans has blamed an attacking mindset for the Red Devils' poor home form this campaign.

The reigning Premier League champions slumped to a 2-1 loss to Tottenham at Old Trafford on New Year's Day, their fourth defeat at the Theatre of Dreams, following defeats to West Brom, Everton and Newcastle.

"It is hard to explain," said Northern Ireland defender Evans. "They caught us on the break a little bit for the two goals so maybe we need to be a bit more patient.

"Away from home, you tend to be more defensive in your set-up. Maybe at home we are leaving ourselves a bit too open.

"We want to entertain our fans and score goals but maybe that is to our detriment a little bit."

"It is disappointing but we will keep plugging away. We actually played quite well in the previous six games but we have started the New Year on a bad foot and we need to get positive results again."

The Red Devils now find themselves in seventh place in the Premier League, 11 points behind leaders Arsenal and four points shy of fourth paced Liverpool.
