'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Your Choice Would Be?

Sir Alex Ferguson may have insisted to Kenny`s little girl, Kelly Cates, that David De Gea will start against Chelsea but could he have been bluffing?

Against Benfica, in the Champions League, Anders Lindegaard had an exceptional game and although Sir Alex was very quick to acknowledge he has two keepers but has a preference for De Gea, could Anders surprise us all?

The Dane, following the draw in Lisbon, inferred that he had no intention of staying at Old Trafford to simply play second fiddle to De Gea, remarking,

"If you expect me to say I`m happy to be number two that`s not how it is.

"I`m here because I want to be number one. In the end, if I`m good enough I`m going to be. I`ve not had many opportunities to show who I am, but this was one."

"It`s not as clear as last year who is first and who is second."

"I`m not here to pick my nose!"


With, apparently, very little to choose between the two, who would you opt for this Sunday when Chelsea visit Old Trafford?

De Gea over Lindegaard for a number of reasons. Firstly, whilst Lindegaard was very impressive v Benfica I think he understands that if we drop De Gea now it will destroy the lads confidence, fair enough if we drop him in the future when he's more settle but it's far too early now. Secondly, De Gea's distribution will be invaluable when maintaining possession and counter-attacking. Thirdly, Chelsea have self-fish players who love having a shot, no doubt Lampard and Malouda would've heard of the 'most goals conceded from outside the box' statistic and just give us back possession from silly ranges and angles, in the same way most teams have this season and they will invite pressure back on themselves. De Gea's reactions and one-on-one skills will be needed in the event Anelka, Torres or Drogba get through on goal.

De Geas shot stopping today was good, he actually really looked comfortable for us today - nothing he could do about Torres goal - that was special.....
