      The defender urges the Bianconeri to stay focused ahead of next week’s return leg in Monte Carlo: “We’ve given ourselves a platform to get through to the next round, but there’s still a lot of work to be done in Monte Carlo”

      Patrice Evra says the slender 1-0 advantage held by the Bianconeri means they cannot afford to rest on their laurels when travelling to Monaco for the return leg in eight days’ time.

      The Frenchman, who lined up against his former employers this evening, remains convinced that the quality possessed by the Stade Louis II outfit signifies there is still plenty of football to be played before this season’s Champions League semi-finalists are decided.

      Discussing the encounter with reporters, Evra said: “It’s still an open tie and we must respect Monaco, who are a decent side. We didn’t make the mistake Arsenal made in underestimating them, even though 1-0 isn’t an amazing result. In spite of that, it gives you a platform to get through to the next round. There’s still a lot of work to be done in Monte Carlo.”

      “We’re a good team and, by getting through to the next round, we’d become a great team. We must keep moving forward: this shirt brings enormous responsibility, especially when thinking back to the great players who have made history.”
