Even at this late stage of the season, competition for places in the starting lineup is as strong as ever.

In our wide positions one of Nani, Ashley or have to sit out whilst up front Hernandez, Welbeck and Berbatov are left to battle it out for the position beside Wayne Rooney upfront.

It wouldn’t be if there wasn’t competition and this is something learned quickly having seen the likes of Chris and Phil pop up and attempt to usurp his place.

But despite their emergence, Evans takes heart in a legend and how he managed to deal with the threats:

always buy players because they want to improve.

“Paul (Scholes) has been here all his life, but look at the quality of midfielders who have been bought during the time he’s been here.

and are just the start.

“Paul has played almost 700 games, is regarded as one of the best players of all time and a legend at the club. But even he has had to overcome obstacles.”
