Dean Henderson put aside his horror show at Bramall Lane earlier in the season to deliver a superb performance for Sheffield United at Liverpool last night, much to the pleasure of Manchester United fans.

The Manchester United youngster was at the top of his game. He denied Mo Salah with a superb reaction save in the first-half, before being unlucky to see Sadio Mane gobble up a rebound for the second goal.

Henderson also made a number of other saves throughout and once again impressed. Despite not keeping the ball out, the England man already has seven clean sheets this term. That puts him top of the pile in the Premier League in terms of shut-outs.

A few weeks back, a poor display from David De Gea saw Manchester United fans call for Henderson to return to Old Trafford.

It seems, then, that following Henderson’s display last night, a lot of those fans are at it again. Twitter was awash with impressed Red Devils looking on in envy at the Blades having the youngster in the sticks.

If some of the comments are anything to go by, then it’s safe to say Manchester United fans would like Dean Henderson back sooner, rather than later.

Some England fans got in on the act too, calling for Henderson to replace Jordan Pickford this summer in the Euros.

Our view

Dean Henderson seems to get better and better for Sheffield United. His performance at Anfield was that of a player who felt a need to prove himself.

That shows the character of the young stopper. We all know he isn’t a shy player, but to come through that game tonight in such fine fashion is a testament to his ability and mindset.

It’s little surprise, then, that Manchester United fans are calling for Henderson to come back after his Liverpool performance.
