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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
