Manchester United skipper Nemanja Vidic knows pundits feel Chelsea striker Fernando Torres has an edge on him. Vidic knows that regardless of the duo's respective achievements or form at club level, it follows him into the Champions League quarter-final.

"Obviously this is the opinion that some people have," said Vidic. "Sometimes I do read in the papers people saying that I have a hard time against a particular player but, for me, that makes me focus even more on doing my job properly.

"The media always mentions this but I don't have a problem with that. I can't change these opinions by talking. I can only change them by what I do on the pitch."
