Man Utd defender Evans: My toughest opponent? Jason Roberts!

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans has singled out Jason Roberts as his toughest opponent.

Evans has faced some of the world's great strikers.

But he told manutd.com: "I always find it harder against the big, strong lads. No-one is going to have an easy day against the big, tough lads. There’s a difference sometimes between a good striker and a striker who doesn’t give you an easy day.

"Those strikers are definitely the ones you don’t like facing. I thought Jason Roberts for Reading was a big, tough forward. He’s hard to handle because you can’t get too close to him."
