Premiership round-up: Anders Lindegaard injury a blow to Manchester United

MANCHESTER United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard will be out for at least a month with an ankle injury.

Alex Ferguson confirmed that the 27-year-old Dane has suffered ligament damage and will be "at least four weeks, maybe five or six" on the sidelines.

Lindegaard's injury means David De Gea is likely to be in goal for United for the game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

- Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee) will be assessed ahead of tomorrow's Barclays Premier League clash with Blackburn at Emirates Stadium.

Full-back Kieran Gibbs (groin) has returned to full training, but Carl Jenkinson (back), Andre Santos (ankle) and midfielder Abou Diaby (hamstring) are still out.

Ivory Coast forward Gervinho is still away at the African Nations Cup, but Morocco striker Marouane Chamakh is due back, although not in time for tomorrow. Midfielder Jack Wilshere suffered a setback in his rehabilitation from an ankle injury.

- New signing Louis Saha could make his Tottenham debut in Monday night's game at Liverpool.

Jermain Defoe (hamstring) is unlikely to play, Rafael van der Vaart is struggling with a calf problem and Emmanuel Adebayor hobbled off during Tuesday's win over Wigan with a hamstring complaint.
