Anders Lindegaard is determined to continue to pile the pressure on Manchester United’s currently recognised No.1, David de Gea.
Despite the Dane seemingly laying down a marker for his own first-team claims with an impressive display against Benfica on Wednesday evening, United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists De Gea will be back for Sunday’s all-important Premier League clash against Chelsea.
United are 6/1 with bookmaker to win 1-0 at Old Trafford and customers can get a free In-Play bet for the game this weekend.
However, the Spaniard’s shaky start to his United career, coupled with Lindegaard’s emergence, could provide Ferguson with an interesting dilemma.
Lindegaard says: “I learned a lot from Edwin van der Sar and I have confidence in my own ability. I came to Manchester United for the challenge to be the first-choice goalkeeper.”
