Lindegaard lauds 'world-class' defence

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard believes his side's recent form is down to a "world-class" defence after they claimed their fourth clean sheet in just five Premier League games.

• Hernandez out for a month

The Red Devils have only conceded once in the league since the 6-1 hammering by rivals Man City and, after another 1-0 win (this time at Aston Villa), Lindegaard thinks that the solidity of having Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic back together again.

He said: "Our defence was world class against Aston Villa. Vidic and Ferdinand showed they are truly world-class players. The quality we have been showing in defence since the Manchester City game has been scary.

"The competition for those two spots is amazing. There are four or five players that could play in those positions. We have a couple of world-class defenders in Rio and Nemanja but Phil Jones and Chris Smalling are ready to fill their positions."

Jones maintained he was more than happy to be shuffled around the side if it means the team keeps on winning.

The 19-year-old summer signing from Blackburn has produced some impressive performances this season despite being asked to play on the right or in the centre of defence and also in midfield.

''I enjoy playing anywhere. I enjoy playing football, so wherever I am asked to play I will play,'' he said. If the manager asks me to play right-back, centre-back or midfield, I will go and do a job there.

''I don't think it really matters at the moment that I am cementing a spot in a certain position because I am still young. Hopefully, as my career progresses that will happen.''
