The club have confirmed that Anderson has pulled his hamstring which almost certainly means he won’t play next weekend against Manchester City. I had to say I told you so, trust me, but I have predicted for a while that this injury was coming. This is his sixth season at United but his time here has been marred by injury. He follows a cycle of finding good form, then being ruled out with injury, before returning to look unfit and not bothered.
Hopefully this won’t be a lengthy spell out for the Brazilian.
