(Anders Lindegaard)
Anders Lindegaard is in line to make his first Old Trafford appearance against Crawley Town on Saturday, and the Dane insists United are not contemplating the ramifications of an FA Cup upset.
The competition's romantic tendencies have thrown together the Barclays Premier League leaders and the Blue Square Premier League promotion chasers in the last-16 tie. A Crawley win would almost certainly represent the biggest giant killing in the competition's history, but Lindegaard says such a shock is not on the table, as far as United are concerned.
"It's not an option we think about," Anders told United Review. "Before playing a match you don't wonder what will happen if you lose. You just think positively and it's the same on Saturday. Defeat is not an option."
Lindegaard made his Reds debut in the fourth round victory at Southampton, and Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that he expects to hand the Dane his first taste of Old Trafford action on Saturday. With Edwin van der Sar's retirement looming, Lindegaard is focused on taking every chance he gets to shine, while ignoring plentiful media rumours linking United with a string of potential new stoppers.
"It's the best and biggest job for a goalkeeper in the world. It's the job everybody wants: being number one for Manchester United. Small kids want it, the biggest goalkeepers in the world want it. And I want it."
