Anderson has been at Manchester United for six seasons but has only played 90 minutes in 19 of the 96 league games he has played in, which works out at less than 20%.
He has averaged 16 appearances a season in the league since joining the club and played for the full 90 minutes in a league game just three times a season. Of course, this isn’t explained entirely by injuries. Poor form and tactical reasons can partly explain why he played in so few games in the past six years. However, to play in so few games and complete even fewer points to an alarming lack of fitness.
Oh well, he’ll always have Moscow eh…
