“It was very important but more in the sake that we lost last weekend and also very important to put pressure on Chelsea and Man City, who are playing each other. That will be a very interesting match to watch with a good feeling in the stomach after winning our game today.”
Saturday’s clash with QPR provided a third consecutive start for Lindegaard after featuring against Norwich and Galatasaray in the absence of David De Gea, who was unavailable after having his wisdom teeth removed.
Both goalkeepers were fit at the weekend, however, causing another selection headache for Sir Alex Ferguson, who has repeatedly rotated the pair for much of this season and last.
“I was very pleased to start because I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out,” Anders admitted. “David has been unlucky with his teeth and for me it is a sign that I did well in the last couple of games. I am very happy every time I play.”
