In what has become a very repetitive and tiresome bit of news in his stint at the club. Anderson is once again injured. He is reported to be out for five weeks with a Hamstring injury. Sky Sports with the article

"Anderson could be out for four or five weeks due to his hamstring," Ferguson told the club's official website.

"Some hamstrings are relatively straightforward but we have to wait and see how he is in the next week or so to get a better idea of where we stand with him [in terms of recovery]."

I wonder what is the biggest stint he has had without having to sit out a game injured. The start of the season seems a long time ago, where he and Tom Cleverley started the season like a house on fire in the United engine room. Both players have had their season destroyed by injury since though.

With Paul Pogba reportedly stalling on a Juventus deal, does Anderson have a long term future at the club? He is a very talented player with a great work rate. He can also beat a man from the centre of the pitch and has an eye for a pass which I like. But he is forever injured. Im a cruciate knee injury away from mentioning him in the same breath as a certain midfielder who was once great, yet ALWAYS injured. Yes, he who travelled across the City to play in the sky blue....

Anyway, I do wish the Brazillian midfielder the best, and hopes he gets back to action sharpish. The more midfield options, the better!
