June 9, 2011 - London

Defender Patrice Evra has revealed how a pep talk from manager Alex Ferguson inspired Manchester United to Premier League glory.

Fergie had a long chat with his men after the May 1 loss at Arsenal dented United's title chances.

Defender Evra, 30, said: "After we lost at Arsenal, the boss asked whether or not we wanted to win a 19th league title and break Liverpool's record?

"He asked, 'How many opportunities are you going to miss? You're going to regret it if you don't win it".

"I was pleased we got the point we needed at Blackburn - otherwise I think we'd have got the hairdryer from him."
