No problem for Sir Alex

Sir Alex has no issue with enjoying the luxury of having two top-class goalkeepers competing for a starting spot.

David De Gea has settled well into life in England since his summer move from Atletico Madrid, impressing sufficiently to earn the ManUtd.com Player of the Month award for November.

After the young Spaniard kept a clean sheet at QPR last weekend, Anders Lindegaard came into the team for the 5-0 romp at Fulham to extend his run of shut-outs in the Barclays Premier League this term to four.

Indeed, the Denmark international has only been beaten once, in the 1-1 draw against Benfica, in all of his six matches this term.

When asked by MUTV if having two quality keepers is a nice problem to have, Sir Alex replied: "It’s not a problem because I think Anders has that little bit more experience. I felt his was the right time to change and we’re going to do that with David.

"He’s only 20 years of age and is going to be a fantastic goalkeeper, there’s absolutely no doubt about that. Having Anders as a back-up in terms of giving the lad a break at the right time, is proving its worth. Anders is an outstanding goalkeeper and has a little bit more experience."
