Boss hails strike duo * Javier Hernandez Chicharito

Sir Alex was full of praise for his two front men after the Reds secured victory over Olympique Marseille to book a spot in the last eight of the Champions League.

Wayne Rooney pulled the strings for the Reds, while Javier Hernandez was on hand to poke the ball home in each half.

Chicharito made it 16 goals for the season and Sir Alex admits the Mexican has surpassed everyone's expectactions at the club.

"We thought he was a young lad who was going to progress and maybe have to get used to our training and English football, but he's been an absolute star and a real bonus for us," the boss told MUTV. "His movement is fantastic, he's always on the move, and his timing of runs is terrific. He's always on the last defender.

"They're a good combination. Their partnership has been developing really well. Where Wayne has played in the last couple of games has really threatened teams. He's got such power and speed with ball."

A late own goal from Wes Brown ensured there were some nervy moments towards the end of the tie, while injuries to both John O'Shea and Rafael made United's task all the more difficult.

"If you're an opposing team and you see that [injuries] happening during a game you'd be encouraged," said Sir Alex. "That was a big problem for us because they kept playing balls into the penalty area. At the same time though they didn't really have any clear chances and I think we can be proud of that fact."
