United are closing in on a record 20th league title which they can secure on Monday night following Manchester City's 3-1 defeat at Tottenham.
Victory against Aston Villa at Old Trafford will also set them up for a four match run-in where maximum points would allow them to overhaul Chelsea's record Premier League total of 95 points.
Yet it seems destined to be a championship collected with caveats because few think this is one of Sir Alex Ferguson's best teams, let alone the finest since the league was changed in 1992.
It is not something particularly understood within the Red Devils camp - but then Evra is not that bothered about it.
"People want to see Manchester United fall down," said the France full-back. "In the seven years I have been here, it has always been the same.
"When you lose one game it is like the end of the world. If you don't accept this pressure, you can't play for Manchester United."
Evra added: "The league is not a sprint. People just want to see us playing well in a big game against City, or Liverpool.
"This is not the way to win a league. Of course you want to win against the big teams. But it is about how many games you win.
"I thought 'why are people talking. We are 12 or 15 points clear but they keep saying Manchester United this or that'. If that is what they want to do, OK. But in the end, if we get to lift the trophy we will see who is right."
