Anderson: Don’t worry about Gerrard

Anderson vs Gerrard

Since joining Man Utd from Porto last summer, Anderson has displayed wonderful attacking as well as defensive capabilities. He was bought as a hot prospect that would need a season or two to settle and get accustomed to the team’s style of play. However, he surprised Sir Alex Ferguson and all supporters by performing exceptionally for the first team. Although he hasn’t yet scored a goal for the club, he has shown that he is capable of filling up Paul Scholes’ boots. Anderson played in the away leg against Liverpool last year and battled hard against Steven Gerrard. The outcome was a win to United in front of the Reds supporters.


In the Grand-Slam Sunday match against Liverpool, Anderson is sure that he can handle world-class midfielder Gerrard once again. His fighting spirit has also been praised by the Man Utd boss, who is determined to keep his team focussed, to grab the three points from the Sunday encounter.


“I am finding that I can raise my level and offer more when I am playing against the big stars and this is how it was when I played against Gerrard.” – Anderson


“Anderson can handle anything. He’s got a terrific belief in himself. Like a lot of Brazilian players, he was just born to play.” – Sir Alex Ferguson


Chelsea are favourites to win the other big match against Arsenal, so that could mean Man Utd creating a five-point cushion at the top of the table if they win at Old Trafford. A Chelsea win would see Arsenal dropping to third place, with one point less than Chelsea. Chelsea, which are currently five points behind Man Utd, would be back in the title race and determined to push Man Utd all the way, with Man Utd still to travel to Stamford Bridge in April.
