ÔÇ£ItÔÇÖs one of the most aggressive teams I have played against,ÔÇØ Evra told UnitedÔÇÖs website.
ÔÇ£It was good to see Arsenal like that. They get abuse, [with people saying they are] a team with good footballers but they are not aggressive enough. They were aggressive enough.ÔÇØ
He added: ÔÇ£But my focus is on Manchester United and I am happy with our response in the second half, even though IÔÇÖm frustrated and disappointed with the result.ÔÇØ
ÔÇ£We wanted to win the game and we had more chances than Arsenal. I donÔÇÖt think we started well though.
ÔÇ£We were sleeping a little bit after being champions last week. But in the end we showed character. We were professional and we definitely played to win the game.
ÔÇ£ThatÔÇÖs why everyone was angry at half time. We really wanted to win and I think we created more chances and deserved to win.ÔÇØ
