O'Leary blasts Sir Alex

"I don't think one up front suits them."

"I don't think Paul Scholes is a link player and neither is Juan Sebastian Veron."

"Teddy Sheringham and Eric Cantona could both do it but they are no longer here. The one player who could play the link striker role is Dwight Yorke."

"United are much more of a threat when they play two strikers up front."

"I also think they are edgy at the back. I went there last year thinking 'we'll take a draw, no danger'. This time we should have won the game."

"We are young but we are not naive now. Travelling to Old Trafford, nobody was scared. Nobody was thinking it's 20 years since we won there."

"We have a group of players who are mentally very strong. They are hungry and they want to win things."
