Evans: Hard to explain home form

Jonny Evans has said he is at a loss to explain why Manchester United’s home form is so poor.

• Brewin: Sherwood convinces as Moyes suffers a setback
• Okwonga: Man United succumb in tale of two flanks

The defending champions were beaten 2-1 by Tottenham on New Year’s Day, making Spurs the fourth team to leave Old Trafford with three points after West Bromwich Albion, Everton and Newcastle.

United, who have also drawn against Chelsea and Southampton at home, have won only four league games on their own turf, taking just 14 points from a possible 30 and leaving them with a worse home record than Hull and Stoke.

Defender Evans wondered whether United had been too attacking for their own good and ought to be more cautious at Old Trafford.

He told MUTV: “Our home form hasn’t been good, our away form has and we have to get the balance right.

"It’s hard to explain -- we left ourselves too open to the counter-attack against Spurs and they caught us on the break twice, whereas away from home we’re a bit more defensive in our set-up.

"We want to entertain our fans and score goals. I think that’s to our detriment a bit: maybe we should be a bit more patient."

Evans said he felt United did not deserve to lose to Tottenham as their six-game winning run came to an end. He added: "I thought we did enough to have got something out of the game.

"Their goals came from nowhere, really. They had two breaks on us that left us open. It’s disappointing, but we’ll keep plugging away.

"We’ve started the New Year on a bad note but we’ll keep trying to get results. In the last six games we’ve played quite well and controlled matches -- we have to keep at that."
