Defenders scared of United duo

Phil Jones and Patrice Evra have lauded Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez after the Manchester United forward pair demolished Bolton on Saturday.

Hernandez grabbed a brace at the Reebok Stadium, while Rooney netted a second hat-trick in as many games to take his season tally to a phenomenal eight goals in four games.

United already have a quite remarkable goal difference of positive 15 as they sit at the top of the Barclays Premier League table after what had initially looked to be a tricky start to the campaign on paper.

But with Rooney and Hernandez working again in tandem, anything is possible for United, say Jones and Evra, with the former claiming it is nigh on 'impossible' to defend against the strike duo.


"It is impossible to defend against Wayne and Javier at times," explained the 19-year-old defender.

"Their movement is phenomenal. It is a struggle for defenders to cope with it."

Evra, meanwhile, has been awestruck by the performances of Rooney so far this term, and hopes the 25-year-old can continue his sensational form for the remainder of the season.

"Last season he had some problems but now Wayne is back," said Evra. "Now he wants to show what a top player he is.

"He is a great professional and wants to be the best in the world.

"He just has to keep doing what he is doing. I will be very happy if he keeps scoring and we win the league."
