Paddy: Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao help me.

Manchester United centre-back Paddy McNair has revealed that strikers Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao are helping him to become a better defender.

He made this known to United Review, United's match day programme, "It's hard – not great for confidence! But it's obviously really good for me,” reported.

It's only going to make me a better defender to be playing against world-class strikers every day.

"I'm just looking forward to the season continuing and trying to get better each day. Their goal scoring records speak for themselves, so if I can stop them in training then I must be doing something right."

McNair also spoke about prospect James Wilson, and said that he is a challenge in training. "Oh, he's brilliant," says the 19-year-old defender.

"I think he's got everything. There's nothing he can't do. It's just a matter of time before he gets his first hat-trick at Old Trafford!

"He works really hard and it's a real challenge to face him in training."
