Man Utd's Evans impressed by Da Silva twins

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans expects both Da Silva twins, Rafael and Fabio, to feature against QPR in this week's Carling Cup clash.

"Everyone's been really impressed with Rafa. He's more or less pushed his way into the first team picture with a couple of games. I think everyone will remember his game against Peterborough in pre-season where he was outstanding. Both he and his brother are very good going forward, which you'd expect from Brazilian full-backs, they almost play like wingers," Evans told manutd.com.

"The twins have different styles of play. I think they're both right-footed, but Fabio plays at left-back and likes to come inside a bit more. He also did very well when he played against Peterborough, and people behind the scenes are excited about how good the two of them can become. Fabio picked up a shoulder injury recently, so I'm not sure if Middlesbrough will come too soon for him, but he's a really good prospect for the future."
