David de Gea ‘seems likely’ to start for Man Utd against Leeds

With the start of the new Premier League season looming large, it looks like David de Gea has sneaked ahead of Dean Henderson in the race to become Manchester United’s recognized number one goalkeeper.

The Spaniard was dropped for Henderson at the end of last season, with the former Atletico Madrid star only featuring for rotational purposes and in the Europa League.

Earlier on Monday, Manchester United confirmed that Dean Henderson would miss this week’s training camp in Scotland after suffering from ‘prolonged fatigue’, having tested positive for COVID-19 a few weeks ago.

Henderson’s absence from training could give De Gea the upper hand in the race to start the season in goal, with the 24-year-old yet to feature in any pre-season games.

As per The Telegraph, it ‘seems likely’ that De Gea will start the Premier League curtain-raiser against Leeds in less than a fortnight. De Gea has returned from holiday after taking part in this summer’s European Championship.
