Man Utd’s Evans blames injury woes for miserable run

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has blamed his team’s dismal form on a rash of injuries after their troubled season hit a new low with Sunday’s derby disaster against Manchester City.

City swept to a 3-0 victory at Old Trafford in a one-sided clash that could have been an even bigger defeat for Erik ten Hag’s outclassed side.

And Evans believes the absence of so many players has destabilised the squad

“I think we’ve been disrupted with a lot of injuries this season in terms of key personnel,” Evans told MUTV

“Probably a lot of our starting players would be, you know, they’re missing.

“I think the manager’s found out difficulties having to sort of work on team, on tactics and having to change the personnel quite a lot with only two days in between games.

“So that’s been difficult. Hopefully we can get more players back and get a real sort of opportunity to create freshness within the playing squad.”
