Patrice Evra insists that the Premier League title remains the priority despite progress in Europe.

United won their 16th league title last season, and are well placed again this year, currently only sitting behind leaders Arsenal due to goals scored.

Sir Alex Ferguson who celebrated 21 years at the club this week has made no secret of his desire to win a second UEFA Champions League title, and United have made a good start to their campaign this season.

However, Evra has made it clear that acheiving domestic dominance is the driving force in the Old Trafford dressing room, a quest that continues on Sunday at home to Blackburn, a side who have lost only once in 16 league matches.


"It will be a very hard game at the weekend," Evra said.

"I think maybe more hard than Arsenal. Blackburn are a strong team, physically you have to be ready for this game.

"I went to the Champions League final with Monaco (losing to Porto in 2004) and I want to win that trophy but this year I want to win the Premier League first.

"It is the priority because you need to confirm your trophy. It is unbelievable to win the Premier League. It is one of the best leagues in the world and last year I was so happy."


The Frenchmen believes that United possess the firepower this season to challenge on all fronts, but that the games against their closest rivals will ultimately decide their destiny.

"I think this year it is very hard to win the title and we need to beat our rivals for psychological reasons.

"We have the team to win the title again but you have Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea.

"This year the squad is more strong, we have a lot of quality players. With (Carlos) Tevez, (Wayne) Rooney (Louis) Saha, (Cristiano) Ronaldo, Nani and (Ryan) Giggs we know we can score every game."

He's right imho....always the premiership followed closely by CL and FA CUp....

blackburn harder than arsenal...lmao...
