Anderson: Manchester United midfielder hoping to prove himself this season

The Brazilian has struggled to hold down a regular spot in the United side over the last few seasons after seeing his progress hindered by a series of injuries.

The 25-year-old is hoping he can steer clear of any further setbacks and prove himself to the new United boss.

"I just want to play as many games as I can. I just hope I can stay clear of injuries," Anderson told Inside United.

"I've been training hard on the training pitch and in the gym and working on my conditioning. I am pleased with how things are going and, whenever the manager needs me, I will be ready.

"I have been doing more running, which has helped my fitness. The physios in Portugal have helped me a lot, as have all the coaches at United. I have also been working hard myself. I have built up the strength in my knee, worked hard in training.

"I have been eating well and sleeping well, while I have also been coming into training on my days off to do more work. It has really helped me and I feel great.

"I think it's a big season for me, for everyone. However, I don't want to say that and then pick up another injury. I have often started seasons well, played six or seven games and then got injured.

"I'll tell you at the end of the season if it's been a big season for me!"

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
