United thrashed Wigan 5-0 on Monday to go level on points with leaders Manchester City in the Premier League.
It was a match full of positives for the Red Devils except for the injury to Jonny Evans which forced Evra to move from his left-back position into a central defensive role alongside Michael Carrick.
So while other players might rue the fact that Evans, who was United's only fit central defender heading into the game, now joins a long list of injury concerns for manager Sir Alex Ferguson, Evra has chosen to see the silver lining instead.
"This is the United spirit: you can play everywhere," Evra told MUTV.
"If you want to win, you have to accept it. You can see Antonio Valencia playing right-back as well. Only because United play like a team.
"The team is the star, not only one player, that's why you can put me and Michael Carrick at centre-back; we're going to win because it's the team effort and team spirit. That's why I'm confident.
"I've said that from the beginning - in six years playing here - the Man United spirit... no one team has got that spirit. This is United. This is why I'm so proud to play here."
United have now racked up their eighth league victory in nine games courtesy of the Wigan result and more tellingly it is also a fourth successive win since the UEFA Champions League defeat at Basel.
Ever the optimist, Evra views the huge failure of United going out of Europe as a moment which can inspire the team to hit the heights for the remainder of the season and retain their Premier League crown.
"I think it was a big disappointment when we went out early in the Champions League," the said.
"But I think it was a wake-up call, because maybe everyone looked at themselves in the mirror and said 'we can do much better'."
United next host Blackburn Rovers at Old Trafford on December 31st in the Premier League.
