David Beckham has warned Manchester United to keep an eye on Adriano and Zlatan Ibrahimovic when they face Inter Milan at the San Siro on Tuesday night.

Beckham, whose current team AC Milan were beaten 2-1 by Inter in Serie A eight days ago, feels United will be favourites to go through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League if they can tame Inter's two strikers.

"They have got good players all the way through the squad, but I think the two forwards are strong," he said, after playing 90 minutes in Milan's 1-0 win over Cagliari on Sunday.

"They are quick; they can hold the ball well and they are not frightened - so if you can control them, then you have got a chance.

"But Man Utd have also got players that can win games, and their defence is exceptional at the minute.

"They are (favourites) in my eyes, but I'm biased.

"I think they are because of the strength of their squad and the way they have been playing recently.

"They are on a run where they look unbeatable, and I hope that continues.

"As a Man Utd fan, I'm on their side - and also as a Milan player. I'll be coming to the game and I'm sure I'll speak to some of the players and the manager.

"I'm looking forward to it because they are two great teams, two great managers and they have got some great players in both teams - so it's going to be a great game."
