Man Utd teammates hail their attacking trio

Manchester United's players are in awe of their attacking trio Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez.

"If I had to face them I would have to consider killing them - that is the only way you can stop these guys," said fullback Patrice Evra. "Everyone has seen what they are capable of doing to defences so what else is there to do.

"Of course, I am only joking. But how else can you stop them? I am glad I only have to play against them in training because it would not be fun in a match."

While Evra would terminate them, United midfielder Michael Carrick would pay to watch them.

Says Carrick: "It's just brilliant watching Rooney, Ronaldo and Tevez - whether from the stands or on the pitch playing alongside them.

"The movement and the things they do are amazing. Sometimes you just have to hold your hands up and applaud them. That's why I'd pay to watch us - of course I would. We have some of the best players in the world. I love football just as much as anyone so when you see special things you have to appreciate it.

"The manager has so many options now and it doesn't matter whether it's Giggsy or Nani, or Ronaldo and Tevez, we can cause problems for teams on the counter-attack because we are lightening quick.

"We can be defending a corner in our box and ten seconds later the ball can be in the net for us so it's great to have that pace in the team.

"The aim now is to push on and win the Champions League. We are more experienced this year and we all learned a lot from the semi-final in Milan last season."
