Patrice Evra, who hasn’t played since our home win over Liverpool, is set to come back in to the team against Norwich today after being given some time off.
“The intention was always to give Patrice a clean break away from it all after the Suarez thing,” Fergie said. “He needed that rest factor because don’t forget he’s been playing non-stop for four years. But he’s nice and fresh now and he’s had his break. It was a difficult time mentally for him, with everything that’s been going on. After the Liverpool game was over, that was the right time mentally to give him the break. We also needed to give him a break physically, so he’s nice and fresh for the run-in.”
