Manchester United defender Jonny Evans insists that he is glad to have a packed fixture list to help his side maintain their focus.

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has insisted that he is relishing his side's fixture pile-up at this stage of the season.

The Premier League leaders face Everton on Sunday, play a Champions League clash against Real Madrid in midweek and take on Reading in the FA Cup fifth round.

However, despite the run of tough fixtures, Evans has admitted that he enjoys the games "coming thick and fast", claiming that it helps the side maintain focus.

"It is better to be involved in every competition," said the Northern Ireland international.

"Sometimes mentally, if you have a game and then don't have another one for a week, you switch off.

"When the games are coming thick and fast, you don't get a chance. You are constantly engrossed. As far as I am concerned, the more games the better."

Evans has been a key performer for United this season, making 23 appearances and scoring four goals.
