Rafael and Fabio Da Silva stand to have good careers at United, with the Brazilian full-backs impressing despite their limited playing time with the club. Sir Alex Ferguson is already raving about their quality and with limited options as cover, it appears as though we will be seeing more of these twins than we might have anticipated a few months ago.

Like Gary and Phil Neville before them, these two play as left and right sided defenders, possessing the attacking ability and speed of Patrice Evra.

With Danny Simpson loaned to Blackburn, we are certain to see several matches with them starting on the bench, and I believe we are right to hold such expectations of them.

What do you make of the Da Silva twins so far?

Brazilian Nevilles? 😀
