Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard is frustrated to have lost two games on the bounce.The Dane was beaten by Norwich winger Anthony Pilkington’s superb header at the weekend and had no chance with Burak Yilmaz’s winner for Galatasaray. Despite an impressive display by the keeper, and the team in general, Lindegaard found it hard to take too many positives from another reverse.”We’ve lost two games in a row,” he told MUTV. “I played two games in a row and we’ve lost two games in a row. It’s very hard to find smiles about anything or a positive side.”We have an important game on Saturday against QPR and need to get back on track.”Lindegaard admits the incredible atmosphere at the Turk Telekom Arena affected his performance, even though he pulled off a string of fine saves.”It was quite a special atmosphere to play in,” he admitted. “Very hectic, very noisy and loud. You can’t really communicate on the field by yelling and talking. You need to be more visual.”At times, obviously it was very difficult for me. It’s a way of keeping me on my toes and keeping myself in the game communicating, even though they can’t hear me! So I was being more visual and showing where I wanted the ball and what kind of pass I was giving – whether they should turn on it or play it back.”
