Manchester - Manchester United's Brazilian midfielder Anderson will be sidelined until February with a knee injury, manager Alex Ferguson said on Friday.

"Anderson not fit until February, he has gone to see a specialist in Portugal ... we didn't expect that, it's a blow," Ferguson told a media conference.

The Premier League champions, who trail leaders Manchester City by five points in second place, host fourth-placed Newcastle United on Saturday.
