Anderson dropped as United Take Stock?

Sir Alex Ferguson has been going through his team sheet with a red pen, in the wake of Manchester United’s loss to their loss against Manchester City.

The manager is reportedly ready to drop a number of high-profile players in a bid to avoid a repeat of Sunday’s 6-1 rout when United play Everton in the Premier League on Saturday.

While the Toffees, who are thirteenth in the Premier League with three wins from eight, are unlikely to offer the same resistance as City Sir Alex cannot afford to take any chances with his already bruised team. Those following the football betting will know what a massive shock the result was.

Brazilian Anderson is one of the most likely candidates for the axe, after his position was overrun with blue shirts on Sunday. The youngster will be replaced by fit-again, Tom Cleverley, or Michael Carrick.

Captain, Nemanja Vidic, will make a welcome return at the back, the replacement for the suspended Jonny Evans.

United’s assistant manager, Mike Phelan, believes that United’s recent loss will be a test of character for the club players . “For some of them it is the first real big hit they have taken”, Phelan, who was present for United-City in 1989, when the Blues won 5-1, explained.

The next few matches on United’s schedules could, therefore, prove critical for Fergie’s youngest. “Can they take [the defeat] on board?” Phelan asked. “Can they learn from the game?” The lack of experience in the Red Devils’ midfield, in particular, could become a gaping hole for United, if they cannot.
