Fabio Da Silva and Rafael Da Silva are giving problems to Alex Ferguson in selection, not because of their performances but because of their appearances. Rafael Da Silva returned from the summer break a married man, taking away the Ferguson's ability to tell apart Rafael from his identical twin brother Fabio.

Chelsea have raced out of the blocks and as a result, online football betting doesn't rate United chances to win any silverware this year. With Wayne Rooney flat, United need a spark and that could come as a result of more game time due to the Brazilians.

The 20-year-olds may have been in England for more than two years - and have known the United boss twice as long - but the pair are still easily mixed up. 'When we came to the club, Fabio had just got married and wore a ring,' Rafael told Globoesporte. 'So our boss just had to look at the left hand to tell us apart. It was quite funny.

'But now we are both married and wear rings. This has made his life more difficult and occasionally he still gets it wrong. We laugh, but he takes it well.'

Fabio Da Silva was handed a rare start at left back in Tuesday's goalless Champions League draw with Rangers, while suspended Rafael watched from the stands.
