Man Utd boss Ferguson will recall De Gea for Chelsea clash

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says he'll recall David de Gea for their clash with Chelsea.

Anders Lindegaard impressed in last night's 1-1 draw at Champions League opponents Benfica.

Ferguson will have no hesitation in bringing De Gea back this weekend regardless of how well Lindegaard did.

"We have two great goalkeepers," Ferguson said. "We were always going to share it and David will play on Sunday against Chelsea and possibly Anders will play at Leeds next Tuesday, depending upon how we see the situation with Ben Amos, who needs some game-time also.

"There are opportunities to spread the load.

"The English league is so frenetic. Coming into that, as a young goalkeeper, there will be times when we can give him (De Gea) a break.

"This was a good moment because he had a fantastic game on Saturday."
