Corrigan: Real romp without Ronaldo

Anderson demands success

Manchester United midfielder Anderson has said his club has to win a trophy this season after the disappointment of last season.

United suffered a frustrating trophy-less season last campaign, losing the title to rivals Manchester City on goal difference, as well as getting knocked out of the Champions League in the group stage.

And Anderson, 24, who joined Old Trafford from Porto in 2007, believes last season's performance is not good enough for a club of United's stature and that they should be winning every trophy they compete for.

"We have to do better," he told the club's official website. "Manchester United has to win every trophy and we're disappointed if we don't. There's always pressure to do well when you play for this club. Last season we lost the league on goal difference and everybody was sad. But we have to forget that and concentrate on this season."

Barring the defeat against Everton in their Premier League opener, United's season has got off to a good start with the Reds sitting in fifth after three games and the team creating plenty of opportunities in the final third, while their new signings have bedded in well.

"I think the team looks good," Anderson added. "At the beginning of the season it's always difficult but we've got a couple of wins and now we want more. Shinji Kagawa and Robin van Persie have a lot of quality. They make it easier for the rest of the team when they have so much talent. It also means everybody works harder to try and keep their own place."

Anderson has struggled to fulfil his potential since joining the club, with injury ruling him out for extended periods last season. He has only made one start this term.
