Video: Dean Henderson comes close against Arsenal with effort from his own box

Arsenal look set to join Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-finals.

But we’re not all that interested in the result.

Except in the 55th minute of today’s match between Sheffield United and Arsenal, Manchester United loanee Dean Henderson almost equalised for the Blades with an effort from his own box!

His drop kick bounced in Arsenal’s box putting opposing goalkeeper Emoliano Martinez in a bit of bother. The Argentine leapt into the air but the ball’s bounce sent it over the bar for a goal kick.

David McGoldrick got a late equaliser but Dani Ceballos put Arsenal ahead again in stoppage time.

Manchester United have already booked their place in the semi-finals of the competition after a 2-1 win against Norwich last night. The game went to extra time at 1-1, but Harry Maguire was in the right place at the right time to score a late winner.
