It appears Anderson’s hamstring injury is a little more serious than expected, with The Times stating the midfielder could face being out for 8 weeks.¬†

Anderson had just begun to find form when he was withdrawn in the first half against Reading, a game in which he scored United’s first equaliser,¬†complaining about his hamstring.

The Brazilian has missed both games since and although Sir Alex stated that it wasn’t serious and the midfielder would be out for 3 to 4 weeks, today The Times are reporting that medical staff at Manchester United have discovered a tear in his hamstring that is likely to keep him out for double the amount of time it was initially expected to.

This is just the latest in a long line of injuries for Anderson and it couldn’t have come at a worse time for him as he was getting games and building up a head of steam with some impressive performances.

    It has come at a bad time for Man Utd and the player. The lad was playing very well and looked hungry. I would say that this is probably a clear sign to Ferguson that dipping into the transfer market in January should be considered. I know we don’t normally do business in January, but this is different. We have a 6 point lead at the top and we want to keep it that way for as long as possible.

    I think adding a central midfielder could make a big difference. Kevin Strootman is the ideal player for Man Utd. The lad is 22 and has already captained the Holland team. He would cost around £14-15 million, which is good value and probably half of what you have to pay for Fellaini.
