Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard says he will fight for his place as the number one goalkeeper at Old Trafford.
The 27-year-old joined the Red Devils from Aalesund in the winter and has made just two appearances since his arrival.
He was kept out of the team last season by Edwin van der Sar who retired at the end of the campaign.
It's expected to be a battle between Lindegaard and new, highly-rated, signing David de Gea for the No.1 jersey this season.
De Gea has made the move to Old Trafford from Atletico Madrid this summer and is likely to play against Manchester City in the Community Shield at Wembley on August 7.
But Lindegaard is determined to force his way into the first team.
He said: "It's not about making the choice difficult for Sir Alex. For me, it's about being number one. That is what it's all about - playing. I enjoy competing and, so far, I feel very good.
"There is big competition in all the spots but, so far, I'm very satisfied with my own performances.
"I think I've played very well so I believe in my chance. If I didn't believe in my chance, how could I expect other people to?
"I'm not scared at all. I am very proud of representing Manchester United. It's the biggest dream in my career come true."
Lindegaard is available for selection after making a full recovery from a knee operation that kept him out of action in March.
