Manchester United have been dealt another injury blow after goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has been ruled out for a month, according to the Daily Mirror.

The report claims that the United stopper injured his ankle in training on Monday and had a scan yesterday, with results showing he has sustained ligament damage.

The injury will mean four weeks of rehabilitation ruling him out of crunch games against Chelsea, Liverpool and Norwich and makes him a doubt for the Tottenham game on the 4th of March.

Without Lindegaard, Sir Alex Ferguson will be forced to play under-fire goalkeeper David de Gea during an important stage of the title race. De Gea missed Tuesday’s win over Stoke through illness but is likely to return for the Chelsea match.

In his absence, Ben Amos kept a clean sheet against the Potters but Fergie is unlikely to choose him ahead of De Gea should the Spaniard be fit for Monday’s clash, so the young keeper will once again be under the spot-light after an uncertain start to his United career.

This latest injury comes as another blow to Ferguson, who has had to endure a series of injuries to key players this season. However, the Scot hopes to have Wayne Rooney, Ashley Young and Nani back to face the Blues this weekend.
