Manchester United fans delighted with Dean Henderson’s late save vs Crystal Palace

Dean Henderson

Some Manchester United fans on Twitter were pleased with the late save from Dean Henderson during the goalless draw at Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Wednesday.

The Red Devils had gone into the game on the back of successive 0-0 stalemates in the Europa League and Premier League, and the streak continued with another poor attacking display.

Barring one shot from Bruno Fernandes in the first-half, they fluffed their lines and could not test the Palace goalkeeper.

In the end, they could have quite easily lost the game if it was not for the late heroics from Henderson.

The 23-year-old was chosen between the sticks with regular first-choice David de Gea absent due to personal reasons.

He came to the club’s rescue in the 89th minute, advancing from his goal-line to block a shot from Patrick van Aanholt.

In August 2019, Van Aanholt scored from a similar position against de Gea which turned out to be the winning goal, but he was denied by Henderson this time around, much to the relief of some supporters.

Here are a few reactions on Twitter.

Henderson has been the club’s cup goalkeeper this term, with de Gea starting in the Premier League.

The Spaniard is doubtful to face Manchester City this weekend, and Henderson may have another testing challenge against Europe’s most in-form side.

There has been plenty of talk that Henderson could move on this summer with his desire to play regular football and push for the number one role with England. Only time will tell where his future lies.

In other news, Jamie Carragher has advised Manchester United to strengthen one key position to challenge for the title next season.
