Anderson marked his return from injury with a brace for Manchester United reserves against their local rivals.

The Brazilian midfielder scored twice in the second half after being introduced after the interval to seal a 3-1 victory for United against City at Moss Lane.

Anderson has been missing for United since late February when he sustained knee-ligament damage against Crawley at Old Trafford and the 22-year-old could make an instant return to Sir Alex Ferguson's squad after regaining his fitness.

Fulham travel to Old Trafford tomorrow and United will also be able to call upon Wes Brown and John O'Shea, who have also recovered sufficiently to be in contention for the Red Devils.


"Wes Brown and John O'Shea are fit. Anderson played for the reserves last night and is available for tomorrow," confirmed the United boss.

Ferguson also confirmed that Darren Fletcher and Rafael Da Silva are both near returns from their respective ailments.

"Darren Fletcher has put a bit of weight back on which is good. He's progressing not too badly now," he added.

"Rafael won't be available for tomorrow but he should be okay for Tuesday."
