Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is preparing to hit Dynamo Kiev with a classic counter-attacking punch in his side´s Champions League clash on Tuesday night.

United headed out to the Ukraine on Sunday in confident mood following their 4-1 triumph over Aston Villa, and have the upper hand following victories in their opening two Champions League encounters with Sporting Lisbon and Roma.

"Kiev´s defeats mean they will have to beat us, which is good," Ferguson told Manchester United Radio. "It means we can set out our stall to play counter-attack. We expect a tough game but our two wins mean we are in a good position."
