Plenty of Sheffield United fans have hailed Dean Henderson after throwback footage emerged from earlier in the Premier League season of the goalkeeper making an ‘absolute world class’ save away at Norwich City.
The club’s official Twitter page posted the video which showed the 23-year old’s ‘incredible reflexes’ as he kept the Blades in the game. United won the game 2-1 with goals from defenders Enda Stevens and George Baldock after they had to come from behind as Alexander Tettey opened the scoring for the hosts, as per the BBC. ‘Deano’ made three saves in total as the Sheffield club moved up to eighth in the table.
Henderson has kept 11 clean sheets in 30 appearances for the Blades in all competitions this campaign, conceding just 24 goals in the process, according to Transfermarkt. This is relatively impressive considering the fact that United were only promoted from the Championship last term.
These Blades supporters hailed their keeper on Twitter, with one fan describing the save that he made as ‘absolute world class’:
