Manchester United defender Patrice Evra insists it is too early to talk about a Manchester United title charge, but he admits that their hunger to win has returned.

Under David Moyes, United endured a poor start to the season, but they have now moved back into the top six thanks to four wins on the bounce in the Premier League.

Evra has been ever-present in the first-team at Old Trafford this season but the Frenchman is feeling fresh ahead of the rest of the season.

The left-back admits United’s hunger has returned and he believes the partnership of Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney will help them in the latter part of the season.

He told the Daily Mirror: “The team is now playing better, we have that winning mentality and United spirit which was missing at the start of the season.

“I can see that our hunger has come back, so I’m confident, but I don’t want to talk about the title. I just want to talk about the next game, Tottenham at home. We need to make sure that we win, and that we keep the momentum going. The squad is strong, but it’s not only about one player.

“We were also without Wayne and Robin when we played against Stoke, and when they come back we’ll be even stronger, which is why I’m so happy.

“With them, we are the strongest team in the Premier League, so we have to keep winning – with or without them.”
