Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea should be concerned he will not get back into the team if Graeme Souness’ thoughts on Dean Henderson are anything to go by. Henderson has now started United’s last two Premier League matches. De Gea returned to Spain last week to be at the birth of his first child.

De Gea had been the regular No 1 for United in the league despite the return of Henderson last summer from his loan spell at Sheffield United

Henderson has huge amounts of self belief and thinks he should be the first-choice for both club and for England.

The 23-year-old now has a run of games to prove to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he is the best goalkeeper at the club.

Henderson started his first league derby against Manchester City on Sunday and his first-half performance attracted praise from Liverpool legend Souness at half time.

Souness believes Henderson has all the tools to be a great goalkeeper.

“Henderson, I liked him from the first time I saw him play,” the pundit said on Sky Sports.

“I think he was competent, that means he’s going to make an almighty rick in the second half, but I think he’s going to be a top goalkeeper.”

Henderson looked assured in the first half and set United onto a fine counter attack which led to their second goal shortly after the break.

And now De Gea must be wondering if his spot in the side will still be there when he returns.

Earlier this week, Solskjaer defended his decision to allow De Gea to take some time away from the game.

“It’s a fantastic day for David,” Solskjaer said.

“Of course when you become a dad that’s probably the best possible feeling you can have. The ones who have been lucky enough to have that feeling know exactly what David is going through now.

“I’ll give him the time he needs before he comes back. He has to go home and in the old world that’s a day, you come back and you’re ready again.

“Now with the pandemic and quarantines of course it’s a different world, but still we felt when David wanted to go and be there to support his girlfriend of course there’s not even a decision to make.”

Solskjaer has always publicly stated De Gea is one of the world’s top goalkeepers.

But Henderson may just be seizing his opportunity to prove the No 1 jersey should no longer belong to the Spaniard.
