The Leeds boss has once again used the logic that a good performance should justify defeat.
Evans claims Murphy and several unnamed Burnley players approached him at full-time and admitted Leeds had 'battered' Sean Dyche's men at Turf Moor.
Burnley won 1-0 but the visitors spurned two gilt-edged opportunities in front of goal.
The Scot told the BBC: "When I shook hands with the players, Luke Murphy said to me 'gaffer, have I got this wrong but have we just battered them?'
"A number of Burnley's players said to me they've got out of jail today."
Four games without a win won't please Leeds supporters, regardless of how the team played.
United haven't been good enough to get more than one point out of a possible 12 over the last four matches. It's that simple.
Evans can keep discussing how his side lost - but it won't buy him any more time or do him any more favours.
Chris Wood cost Leeds dearly with two poor misses. Next up for United is a Tuesday-night trip to Birmingham City.
