He was dropped. He started the first two Premier League games and was dropped afterwards for the Southampton match, which wasn't really warranted. I know Anders deserved game time but the fact he's been picked over De Gea here is just odd as De Gea has had a better start between the two.
I know Ferguson wants competition for that #1 spot between the two and I'm all for that but rewarding Anders when De Gea was great mid-week is rather strange. I wouldn't even call Anders the #1 right now.
