Manchester United: Dean Henderson’s penalty save from Gabriel Jesus has Red Devils fans applauding

Manchester United: Dean Henderson’s penalty save from Gabriel Jesus has Red Devils fans applauding - Manchester United

During bitter cross-town rivals Manchester City’s 1-0 victory away to Sheffield United on Tuesday evening, Manchester United supporters marvelled at loanee keeper Dean Henderson’s performance as he saved an early penalty from Gabriel Jesus – which also prompted a media debate over whether he could eventually replace David De Gea. 

Henderson has contributed immensely to a resolute Blades defence so far this campaign, with Chris Wilder’s men conceding the joint-second fewest amount of goals out of any Premier League side. The English shot-stopper is also currently locked in a battle with Ben Foster and Kasper Schmeichel for most clean sheets in the league, with all three keepers having kept eight so far (Premier League) – twice as many as current Red Devils first choice David De Gea. As a result, some sections of the media (BBC) have begged the question, should the 22 year-old be given a shot at Euro 2020 under Gareth Southgate?

United supporters, in particular, were in awe over the keeper following his heroics, with one suggesting he is ‘better than De Gea’ – especially taking into consideration his superior save percentage of 74.68% compared to the Spaniard’s 60.32%, as per the BBC.
