Man Utd pair Evra, Carrick hail Valencia after Bolton performance

Manchester United captain Patrice Evra hailed Antonio Valencia after victory over Bolton Wanderers.

Valencia was outstanding on the wing for United on the day.

"I think he ate a motor," Evra joked with manutd.com. "He was unbelievable.

"I don't know the left-back of Bolton [Sam Ricketts], but I'm sure he had muscle problems after the game. Antonio's so powerful.

"It's just great to see Antonio back [on the wing] and in great form."

Michael Carrick shared that opinion, agreeing it must be "horrible" to be charged with the job of trying to stop Valencia.

"He's really on his game at the moment, and has been for a good number of matches. We just keep giving him the ball and he carries it up the pitch and creates opportunities for us. It's great to see him playing like that and it must be horrible to play against."
