Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke believes that the Red Devils need more ammunition in the midfield and in attack if they have to reach the heights they did in 1992, when they won the treble.

Yorke and Andy Cole were among the best strike partners at the time and were helped by the presence of talents like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and David Beckham to assist them in the midfield.

He believes that United have the talent to forge a similar side to the one that ruled English football for years on end. But feels that with the likes of current players Angel di Maria, Wayne Rooney, Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie, the team has failed to hit form together as an unit.

"I'm sure it's only a matter of time before things click, but as strikers you also need the players behind you to make it happen," said Yorke.

"For me and Coley, we were blessed, as we had the likes of Beckham, Giggs and Scholes providing the ammunition. It was dead easy for us, we just had to put the ball in the
net. They were magical times and we had many magical moments.

"Hopefully the same thing can happen again for this United side," he added.

Yorke expects the players to put in a shift against holders Arsenal in the FA Cup and make a statement, which would translate to the league and help them secure a top-four spot.

"United have world class strikers in the likes of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao, but they don't seem to have found the ideal combination," the striker said.

"Rooney and Van Persie as a pairing hasn't really clicked, so maybe a Rooney-Falcao combo might provide the answer for United long-term.

"With Wembley in their sights and a trophy at stake, there is no better time for the current United crop to stand up and be counted," he concluded.

The Red Devils are currently fourth in the league, a point behind Arsenal and five behind second placed Manchester City. They face the Gunners in the quarter finals of the FA Cup at Old Trafford, where they have an enviable record against Arsene Wenger's men over nine years.
