O'Shea On Manu Form.....


John O'Shea admits United's free-scoring recent form has banished memories of the Reds' early-season goal drought.

A series of narrow victories has been succeeded by three successive four-goal wins, including Tuesday's Champions League romp in Kyiv, and O'Shea feels the Reds' return to form was never in doubt.

"It seems a long time since that run of 1-0 wins when the 'boring' shouts were coming out," said the Irishman. "But that was never going to last with the players we've got at United.

"Attacking wise, you saw glimpses of it against Aston Villa. Some of the patterns of attacking play, and the speed of it, were so attractive and you saw that again in Kyiv. We could have had the game out of the way by half-time with some of the chances we missed. Some of the play was just so good. It was great to be part of it."

Integral to United's recent run has been the form of summer signings Carlos Tevez and Anderson, and O'Shea is quick to recognise the duo's impact.

"Some players settle in straightaway, others need fitness and matches," he said. "You see the sharpness they have. They are showing their abilities now and I'm sure they are going to go from strength to strength."
