United goalkeeper Van Der Sar made a somewhat low-key return to competitive action on Tuesday night, playing 90 minutes of the Red Devils' reserves 1-0 win over their Everton counterparts.
The Dutchman returned having recovered from the broken hand he sustained in pre-season, and kept a clean sheet!
There also appeared to be no further problems relating to the injury for the 38-year-old veteran, who will hope to displace Ben Foster as first-choice between the sticks for the remainnder of the current campaign.
Italian striker Federico Macheda scored the only goal of the game for United.
I certainly hope and wish that you guys that he produces as many clean sheets as possible for the remaining matches. We NEED! to defeat Chelsea and Im sure in the likes of Foster, that would have been hard. In fact, Foster was a nightmare by conceding so many goals in this season - as many as Van Der Sar condeded in the entire last season!
I pay tribute to Edwin by this save! What an incredible guy...
See ya soon :)
