Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard was happy with his chance in victory at Aston Villa.

Lindegaard is pleased to have such a competitive relationship with David De Gea as the pair continue to enjoy plenty of first-team football.

"It's very good," explained the Dane to MUTV. "It keeps us both sharp. I enjoy working with him very much. He is a great lad and always comes in with a smile and a good attitude. It's very enjoyable and it makes us both better."

Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand were also praised by Lindegaard for their contribution to another shut-out.

"They are two absolute world-class players and I think what you saw today was some of the best defensive work you can see on this planet from some of the best defensive players on this planet as well. It's very enjoyable to play behind them because they make it look easy."
