(Video) Man Utd’s Dean Henderson saves penalty during Man City vs Sheffield United

Manchester City were awarded a penalty in the 35th minute in last night’s Premier League clash with Sheffield United.

City winger Riyad Mahrez was brought down in the box before the referee pointed towards the penalty spot.

Gabriel Jesus stepped up to take the spot-kick and his attempt failed to trick Manchester United loanee Dean Henderson, who parried the penalty away. He has now saved 7 of the last 10 penalties he has faced.

If you watch closely you will see Henderson come off his line, so the penalty should have been retaken.

VAR, however, was nowhere to be seen.

City won the game 1-0, thanks to a Sergio Aguero goal in the 73′ minute.

A charge for the title still looks unlucky for Pep Guardiola’s side, as Liverpool run away with it.

Man Utd fans reacted to the penalty save on Twitter, as seen below:
