Ferguson ponders keeper options

david-de-geaDavid de Gea's latest mishap could cost him his place this weekend at Fulham.

 

The Manchester United goalkeeper is back in the firing line once again following his feeble attempt to stop Jay Rodriguez giving Southampton an early lead on Wednesday night.
The Spaniard, admittedly, was only partly culpable due to Michael Carrick's woeful back pass which presented the gift in the first place.
Striker Wayne Rooney got both of his team-mates off the hook with a later brace which has moved the Red Devils, who are now 1.20 to win the title, seven points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
But Reds boss Sir Alex Ferguson is now pondering whether to recall Danish stopper Anders Lindegaard to his line-up for the trip to Craven Cottage. United are 8.00 to defeat Fulham 2-1, and are 2.62 to keep a clean sheet.
Senior sources have indicated De Gea was on the verge of being dropped for the FA Cup tie against Fulham last weekend.
Ferguson, however, was concerned about further denting the confidence of the 22-year-old, in the wake of his injury-time blunder at Tottenham Hotspur that handed them a point.
United are publicly insisting De Gea's future lies at Old Trafford, but both Real Madrid and Barcelona are keeping tabs and will be interested to see if he faces Martin Jol's outfit.
Meanwhile, Brazilian midfielder Anderson picked up a leg knock against the Saints and will be closely monitored over the next 48 hours.
