Manchester United have not been in the best of shape in terms of their performances during the last few weeks.
After their terrible loss against Blackburn Rovers during New Years Eve, Sir Alex Fergusson decided that a few changes to the team might help to bring about a better prospect and approach to the game for the team.

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has said that the defence of Manchester United needs to be praised for their impressive displays in the last few matches. Ever since getting thumped at Old Trafford by Manchester City, Manchester United have gone on a run of clean sheets.
Even though Manchester United number one goalkeeper David De Gea has been responsible for most of them, Anders Lindegaard played his part in the clean sheet against Sunderland. It also marked the 25th anniversary for Sir Alex Ferguson. Speaking after the match, Anders Lindegaard said that he was extremely pleased to be part of the first team on this special day.

Anders Rozenkrantz Lindegaard is the Danish goalkeeper who plays for Premier League side Manchester United.

Anders Lindegaard started his youth career with hometown Danish club Odense Boldklub in 2001.
Denmark number 1 Anders Lindegaard is delighted with how his time at Manchester United has gone, though he admits that it has been a difficult first few months.
Lindegaard arrived at Old Trafford in January 2011 (after the Danish season had ended) and has had a few chances to impress in the first team. He's obviously dismayed that the club went out and bought £20m worth of goalkeeper in David de Gea, but accepts that that is all part and parcel of the competition at a top club like United.
Anders lindegaard has risked the fury of Alex Ferguson by missing the team bus. Staff at United's London hotel, The Landmark, had scheduled post-match drinks and 'chill-out' rooms for the players following their 3-1 defeat to Barcelona on Saturday night.
The muted party, attended by around 300 people, went on into the early hours but United's squad were up and ready to leave the Marylebone Road hotel at noon on Sunday.
Instead of waiting for the Danish goalkeeper, an unimpressed Sir Alex Ferguson told the bus to leave so they could catch their scheduled return to Manchester at 1pm.
