Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has played down the significance of Wednesday's derby clash with Manchester City at Eastlands.
The France international claims City said last season that they were in the process of overtaking their bitter rivals but, when it came to the crunch, United came out on top on the pitch.
He said:"They always say that and they never beat us. We don't care what people say.
"I can say it would be nice to beat Manchester City because it is a special game, it is the derby and everyone wants to win, but it is not the priority. The priority for us is to win the league.
"When we start the league season we think about winning every game. We don't just need to win against Manchester City, we look to win the league, that's it.
"If we beat City, it is a good result for Manchester United. It will be normal, but it will not be so special."
