The one question which would be weighing the heaviest on Sir Alex Ferguson’s mind would be to choose the United no.1 for the Manchester Derby – The Spaniard David De gea or the the Danish Anders Lindegaard. He has two unsettled keepers both of whom haven’t been able to impress despite getting their bunch of chances. United have conceded 33 goals so far in this season which is the 2nd worst ever after 2002 in which they conceded more than 40 goals before Christmas.
The shaky defence and a long list of the injured first team defenders such as Nemanja Vidic (out from 3 months), Chris Smalling( was out until mid November) and Phil Jones(was out till 25th November) are not the only ones responsible for United able to manage only 3 clean sheets in the 15 matches played in the league this season. The Goalkeeper plays the pivotal part and for the red devils, both have been disappointing.
