Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Anderson will be thrown into his starting line-up for Manchester United's clash with West Ham United this week.

The Brazilian midfielder came off the bench to have a massive impact on the United side in their come-from-behind 3-1 win over QPR on Saturday and Ferguson says there is a start for him at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

"I thought Ando won the game for us," he told MUTV.

"His performance was outstanding. He took the game by the scruff of the neck and he was so positive and determined in his play that he picks himself on Wednesday."
