Exactly. I think he believes that his own performances cannot be questioned now that he is stand in captain. He must be a big big character in the dressing room because I do not see what qualities he brings as captain on the pitch. The majority of the time Evra has played this season, he has been caught out of position when opposition teams are attacking and has been at fault for more than a fair share of goals. Fantastic at going forward, and his link up play with whoever is on the left side with him, whether it be Nani, Young or Park, is brilliant. If he was just abit more switched on defensively, he would be the best left back around.
He seems very confident that United will come out on top. But City will put up a very strong fight IMO. No Champions League, no F.A Cup and they could comfortably beat anybody in the Europa League. They will be fully concentrated on the Premiership. They are having abit of a blip at the minute but when they get the Toure brothers back from the African Cup of Nations, Kompany back from suspension and Balotelli fit again, they will back to their best. And who knows, they could even strengthen their squad in this transfer window. It will either go down to the wire, or City will run away with it. I really cannot see us running away with it to be honest.
