Manchester United: 5 Left Backs to Replace Patrice Evra

Patrice Evra has become a liability in the Manchester United defense. Perhaps it is time that Sir Alex Ferguson looks for new options at left back.

Against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Evra was to blame for all three goals that United conceded. At Anfield a week earlier, he was at fault for Liverpool's winning goal.

Evra has suffered a dip in form since the 2010 World Cup, and at a certain point, it is no longer just a temporary loss of form. Each error reinforces the possibility that Evra is now past his sell-by date.

The Frenchman is a constant presence in the United team, and rarely has another player gotten a chance to prove themselves at left back in the past five seasons.

While it becomes increasingly clear that a new left back is needed, there remains the question of who should replace Evra.

These five players would all be excellent (and realistic) replacements for Evra as left back for United.
