Michael Carrick believes Manchester United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo is primed for a big game in tomorrow night's Champions League final against Chelsea.

"Ronaldo could have a massive say," he told manutd.com. "He's world-class and will surely be voted World Player of the Year. These are the games he produces in and there's no bigger game. He's produced the goods all season and scored so many goals - there's no reason why he won't do it again."

However, Ronaldo won't be doing all the work. Carrick knows that, with two evenly matched teams, Chelsea pose a formidable threat all over the pitch.

"It was very tight in the league and going into the last game of the season level on points shows the teams are well matched," he said. "We're feeling great because we won the title, but we'll have to be at our best to win. The rewards and losses are massive, hopefully we'll come out on top."
