Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard is doubtful for the trip to Liverpool following the international break after suffering an ankle injury reports

The 27-year-old Danish international picked up an injury in the recent Barclays Premier League victory over Norwich, and has consequently been forced to withdraw from the Denmark squad for the upcoming Euro 2012 qualifiers against Cyprus and Portugal.

Lindegaard kept a clean sheet for Manchester United in the 2-0 win at Old Trafford, as he continues to vie for the Red Devils' No.1 spot with summer signing David De Gea.

Sir Alex Ferguson has a welcome selection dilemma when the two players are match-fit, but Lindegaard's injury means that the Spanish stopper is now in line to face Liverpool at Anfield on October 15.


"I got a stamp on my ankle at the start of the match on Saturday and should have come off," Lindegaard said in the Daily Star.

"I chose to carry on and paid the price. And although I have to sit on my couch with my leg up now, it was incredibly important for me to play.

"The medical staff at Manchester United believe that the earliest I could train again is next week."

He will return to United's Carrington training ground to undergo intensive treatment in a race to be fit to face Kenny Dalglish's rejuvenated Liverpool side.
