Manchester United midfielder Anderson has vowed to earn a place in David Moyes' first team after working hard during pre-season.
The Brazilian has fallen behind in the pecking order at Old Trafford and has rarely produced consistent form for the Red Devils.
However, the 25-year old says he will be ready if Moyes needs him, and he hopes to start against newly-promoted Crystal Palace at the weekend.
Talking to Inside United magazine, he said: "I've been training hard on the training pitch and in the gym, and I've been working on my conditioning.
"I'm pleased with how things are going and, whenever the manager needs me, I'll be ready."
Anderson has often been criticised for his lavish lifestyle and some fans have been calling for the club to cash in on the player they signed for £20 million back in 2007.
His United career has been plagued by injuries though and he is hoping that he doesn't fall victim to any lengthy period of absence on the sidelines during this campaign.
"I have often started the season well, played six or seven games and then got injured," he stated.
"I have been eating well and sleeping well, whilst I have also been coming into work on my days off to do more training. It has really helped me and I feel great.
"It could be a big season for me."
The midfielder made 26 appearances for United last season, scoring two goals, but he has only played four minutes of Premier League football this season.
