Dean Henderson started ahead of David de Gea for Manchester United’s 1-0 FA Cup victory over West Ham on Tuesday night and he must have been delighted with keeping a clean sheet.

Giving his verdict on Henderson’s performance against West Ham, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “I always hope our keeper has a quiet night when we play and, most of the time, it’s happened that way.

“Dean [Henderson] was good in everything he did, apart from a last header when maybe he took his eye off the ball a little bit.

“David [De Gea], as our keeper, has been used to this for years, to keep concentrating and keep your eye on the ball. Suddenly, one moment comes up and you have to make a save.

“I hope that’s the way it’s going to be for our keepers for many, many years.”
