Phil Jones has praised Manchester United's 'unplayable' strike force after their performance against Fulham at the weekend.

Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney each contributed a goal, along with Antonio Valencia, during a blistering 13-minute spell in a 3-1 victory at Craven Cottage.

The Manchester United youngster was understandably impressed with the efforts of his teammates in-front of goal, and expects more to come if the side can continue to creates chances.

Heold the club's official website: "You saw what they were like in the first half. They were linking up brilliantly and were unplayable. It just goes to show that they're top, top players.

"The goals have been coming. We've created a lot of chances in previous games and could have scored five or six [at Fulham], but we got the three and hopefully we can keep creating opportunities."

It was a third win in a week for Manchester United, who are looking to recover from their relatively slow start to the season following the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer.

The Red Devils remain eighth in the Premier League, but are unbeaten in all competitions since the start of October and have reason for optimism.

"We said about a month ago that we needed to go on a run in the league and pick up some points, and also go on a run in the cup and do well in the Champions League," Jones added.

"We're slowly starting to get some momentum going and we hope we can carry that on in the Champions League on Tuesday."

David Moyes' side are top of Group A with seven points from three matches, and travel to Spain for their midweek clash against basement boys Real Sociedad. United won the reverse fixture, 1-0, thanks to an early own goal at Old Trafford.

"We'll be in a strong position [with a victory] but we need to keep our focus and make sure we go there and get the win," he concluded.
