Upbeat Evra happy with his form - Betting tips

Patrice-EvraManchester United defender Patrice Evra admits he is having to adapt his game to keep up with the changing times.

The left-back managed to grab a goal in the weekend 2-1 victory over Arsenal, taking his tally for the campaign to two goals.
Evra is being encouraged to get forward more by boss Sir Alex Ferguson, although the Frenchman admits it is a fine balancing act for him.
The defender could be told to put his feet up with United expected to ring the changes for Wednesday's Champions League tie at Braga. It is a game that United are 2.30 to win while the Portuguese side can be backed at 3.20 to take three points from the match.
Manchester United are 11.00 to win the Champions League this season and 2.10 to clinch the Premier League title.
Evra admits: "It's good for me (scoring goals) because last year I was a little bit frustrated as I know I have the quality to score goals.
"I have now scored two goals this season and I want to keep that going. I know my first job is to defend, but I will always enjoy scoring goals for United.
"Everyone says that I am an attacking full-back, but it's not just about helping in attack or creating some assists, you also have to score.
"It is really important for the modern full-back to score goals, but I am feeling good about myself and I want to keep my form until the end of the season."
