Loads of Man Utd fans make Dean Henderson claim ahead of next season

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder believes Manchester United loanee Dean Henderson is the best goalkeeper in the Premier League.

On current form, it’s difficult to disagree with Wilder who has guided the Blades to fifth in the league table after another victory at Bramall Lane this afternoon, this time at home to Bournemouth.

Henderson was once again instrumental in the win; the 22-year-old made a remarkable save to keep out Ryan Fraser’s fiercely hit volley.

“Dean is making a case to get in the England team outright, yes. I’ve maintained it all along, if there’s a better goalie in the division right now then I don’t know who that is,” Wilder said after the game, as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

Gareth Southgate has certainly been given something to think about regarding his first choice shot-stopper for the European Championships this summer.

The youngster is outperforming current number one Jordan Pickford in the Premier League this season.

Henderson’s form over his last two loan spells in Sheffield gives Ole Gunnar Solskjaer an important dilemma next season.

Ideally, Henderson should be the long-term successor to David De Gea in goal, but he will not settle being an understudy at Old Trafford.

United risk losing Henderson to a top side elsewhere if they do not manage the talented ‘keeper’s future well in the coming months.

Some United fans think Henderson could realistically be number one next season.
