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Anderson had just begun to find form when he was withdrawn in the first half against Reading, a game in which he scored United’s first equaliser,¬†complaining about his hamstring.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