Jonny Evans takes share of blame for loss

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal blamed injuries, errors by his team, and bad luck for his side's 4-0 League Cup humiliation at the hands of third-tier MK Dons.

Jonny Evans has shouldered some responsibility for Manchester United's 4-0 Capital One Cup humiliation at MK Dons as his dream of being named captain turned into a nightmare.

The Northern Ireland international gifted the League One side their opening goal, when his pass was intercepted and striker Will Grigg beat David de Gea for the first of his brace.

And Evans felt individual errors were a major cause of their heaviest defeat since the 6-1 thrashing by Manchester City in October 2011.

The defender told MUTV: "The lads are disappointed. We started the game really well and could have got a goal or two.

"But then there were some sloppy mistakes, including my pass for their first goal and from that point we made it quite difficult for ourselves."

Jonny Evans and the rest of the United defense were all out of sorts.
Jonny Evans suffered a similarly chastening League Cup defeat as a youngster against Coventry in 2007.

Evans was making his first appearance of the season after being sidelined by a leg injury and he felt that the United players' lack of first-team football was a major factor.

He added: "Once we had to start chasing the game their superior fitness levels showed, because most of our team hadn't played in a while.

"For the first 15 minutes we were well in control, and I'd like to think we might have got a goal there but it wasn't to be. It was just sloppy mistakes which cost us in the end, and once we went two behind there was no way back for us."

With captain Wayne Rooney and vice-captain Darren Fletcher among those rested, manager Louis van Gaal gave Evans the armband for the first time.

"It's a massive thing in my career to captain Manchester United," he said. "While I was disappointed with the result, wearing the armband isn't something many people get to do, so I'm proud of that.

"In circumstances like these, I'm sure the manager would like to blood debutants alongside more experienced players, but because we played [against Sunderland] on Sunday I don't think that was possible.

"There's a consequence of that, I learnt that myself on my debut against Coventry a few years ago, but it's a big learning experience. I think the most important thing is to pick yourself up, learn from it and don't dwell on it too much."

Evans added that he is looking forward to playing with Angel Di Maria, whose 59.7 million-pound move from Real Madrid was completed on Tuesday.

"Angel's a fantastic player, so I'm sure the lads are excited to work alongside him," Evans said.
