MAN UNITED defender Jonny Evans claims his team-mates are rel­ish­ing their tough open­ing to the sea­son.

The cham­pi­ons, who be­gan their cam­paign with a 4-1 win at Swansea, face Chelsea, Liver­pool and Man City in the com­ing weeks.

Man­ager David Moyes has said he be­lieves it could be the club’s hard­est start to a sea­son in 20 years.

But Evans (above) said: “It might not be a bad thing to go straight into the tough games.

“We’ve been wait­ing all sum­mer to get stuck back into it, so why not bring on the hard games straight away?

“You al­ways want a good start and the Pre­mier League’s no dif­fer­ent. “A win­ning start will ob­vi­ously help you later on, but it’s more im­por­tant how you fin­ish the sea­son.”
