The da Silva twins have created a lot of excitement amongst United fans, given their great ability, their attacking nature, and ease at which they made the transition to the English game.

Whilst Fabio comes as the more highly rated of the pair, it is Rafael we have seen a lot more of, due to his brother’s injury.

Rafael has today reflected on the highlight of his debut Premiership season so far.

“I am tempted to say that goal against Arsenal, my first in the United shirt,” said Rafael. “It was quite special. It was a sweet strike too, by the way. But I was also pretty chuffed with my performance against Manchester City when Sir Alex told me that I had totally outplayed Robinho.”
