After several top performances from the bench in the league, as well as solid displays when starting in the cups, Sir Alex Ferguson has finally decided to start Anderson in the league.

He came on for the last half an hour against QPR when we were 1-0 down. We were 3-1 up within 15 minutes and Ando even grabbed an assist for himself.

“I thought Ando won the game for us,” said Ferguson. “His performance was outstanding. He took the game by the scruff of the neck and he was so positive and determined in his play that he picks himself on Wednesday.”
