Manchester United legend Patrice Evra was disappointed with the lack of quality on show during Chelsea’s goalless draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

It was a game of few chances as both sides played out a drab goalless draw in the Manchester rain on Saturday evening.

Evra hailed Chelsea centre-back Thiago Silva as Chelsea’s best player against Manchester United.

“Of course it was a boring game,” Evra told Sky Sports. “I didn’t see seven good passes in a row.

“The players were playing with a safety jacket on and I don’t like that. I want entertainment. I want players to play without fear.

“The best player for Chelsea was Thiago Silva and the best player for Manchester United was Victor Lindelof. It wasn’t enough from both teams.

“[Chelsea goalkeeper] Mendy had a great game too but I think Thiago Silva was the boss in the defence.

“Mendy made some good saves but I’m not surprised with a draw. They were both too cautious.”
