Anderson: Praised by Anders Lindegaard after win over QPR

The Red Devils were trailing one-nil at Old Trafford when Anderson joined the action on the hour mark.

But goals from Jonny Evans, Darren Fletcher and Javier Hernandez turned the game around for United against the club sitting at the base of the Premier League table.

The Brazilian provided the assist for Hernandez - another second-half substitute - to notch the third goal 18 minutes from time.

And Lindegaard, the United keeper on Saturday, said: "Anderson turned the match around.

"He is one of the best players in the world at running with the ball, passing it and keeping the dynamic motion. He is a brilliant player."

But the Dane admitted that United's bad habit of conceding the first goal is a major worry.

He added: "We should be concerned. It is a bad habit. We have to look at it.

"I just asked one of my team-mates afterwards, 'what would have happened if we hadn't conceded a goal?' It was like a wake-up call.

"It is a bad feeling to have conceded a goal in this match. It is very disappointing."

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
