Manchester United midfielder Anderson says he can be the BEST in the Premier League - if he can avoid injury.

The Old Trafford midfielder has played three times on the club's pre-season tour of South Africa and the Far East.

Anderson told the Daily Star Sunday: "I think everybody knows that if I don't have these injuries I can be one of the best midfield players in England - but when I have an injury I can do nothing.

"We know I've had many problems at Manchester United but now I am back after 25 days of holiday and the knee feels good."
