Old Trafford skipper believes his team can improve further.
Manchester United defender Patrice Evra is giving the credit for Chelsea striker Fernando Torres’ open goal miss to God.
The 30-year-old was pleasantly shocked by the Blues tactics during the 3-1 victory at Old Trafford but insists his team can play much better.
United have begun their defence of their Premier League crown in fine style with five wins from as many games.
The France international was happy to give the fans a spectacle but admits he did not expect such an open encounter against Chelsea.
“It was a great game to watch for the fans,” Evra told MUTV. “But it’s the first time I’ve played against Chelsea and seen an open game like that.
“It was a very funny game but, in the end, we won.
“We were lucky to be in front 3-0 at half-time so I said to the players: ‘Forget the first half and try to play like a team in the second half’.
“It was like a boxing fight, I give you and you give me back. It was really strange. I have a lot of respect for Chelsea.
“They didn’t come here just to defend but they attacked and looked to score goals and create chances.
“I couldn’t believe the goal didn’t go in from Fernando Torres. Maybe God was with us.”
“Maybe for the first time, we didn’t control all the game,” Evra added. “Five wins is a good start but I always want more.
“I’m happy to win but I hope in the next league game, against Stoke, we create more and not try to rush things.
“I’m happy because there’s a lot of positive things and we scored three times against Chelsea but, if we want to win the league and win every game, we have to perform better than on Sunday.”
