The Dane also had a couple of shaky moments as United won 3-2 again and Ferguson expects to bring De Gea back for the next Premier League match against Wigan after the international break. 'I think young David made a mistake last week (against Fulham),' Ferguson told Sky Sports. 'He knows it. 'With the form he's been in, he's been making some fantastic saves but one error like that could have cost us the game. 'It's just a learning process for him and he'll be back in a couple of weeks after the international break. 'Anders had his first game. I thought he was a little bit nervous at points but he's a very good keeper also. I don't think it's a big issue but it's something you have to deal with.'

Two bad: Anders Lindegaard was beaten twice at Southampton
