Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said that he is trying to make sure that goalkeepers David De Gea and Anders Lindegaard get enough experience in the Premier League.

Ferguson alternated between the duo at times last season and has done so in the first few weeks of the 2012/13 campaign.

The Scotsman explained that he is doing so to make them both get a better grip of the English game.

"The most important thing I'm trying to do is give both of them experience in the English game," said Ferguson. "Neither is as experienced as Edwin van der Sar or Peter Schmeichel.

"Alternating isn't a problem for me. They're both equally very good goalkeepers.

"That's the policy we've adopted this season and last season, although De Gea played most of last season after Lindegaard was injured. I'm comfortable with this situation."
