Sir Alex Ferguson is considering leaving goalkeeper David de Gea out of Saturday evening’s Barclays Premier League game at Bolton.

Manchester United manager Ferguson has been publicly supportive of the 20-year-old Spaniard since he arrived at Old Trafford and is firm in his belief that De Gea will go on to be the club’s No 1 goalkeeper for the next decade.

But after a couple of high-profile mistakes in his first few games for United, Ferguson spent much of Friday wondering whether to replace De Gea with Denmark keeper Anders Lindegaard at the Reebok Stadium.

Ferguson is concerned about the physical threat carried by Owen Coyle’s Bolton side and thinks that De Gea may benefit from a day out of the spotlight ahead of United’s game in Lisbon in the Champions League on Wednesday.

However, leaving De Gea out now would represent a blow to the former Atletico Madrid man and Ferguson was wondering what effect it may have on his confidence.

Meanwhile, midfielder Tom Cleverley is expected to be rested on Saturday.
