Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar
Solskjaer has hinted Dean Henderson could be in for a start against Newcastle United this weekend.
The Norwegian admits he was impressed with the 23-year-old’s display in the Europa League against Real Sociedad, but refused to give any clue on who his starting goalkeeper will be against the Magpies.
“Of course Dean [Henderson] is in with a shout,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said when asked whether the keeper’s display against Real Sociedad puts him in contention for the Newcastle game on Sunday.
“We pick a team on Saturday and Dean was very solid, good kicking and he could or should have had an assist for Marcus [Rashford], which is another thing we worked on.
“He was clean in his handling, clean in his short passes and it was a good performance.
“He is maturing all the time but I have a very, very good goalkeeper in David [de Gea]. He saved us against West Brom so I can’t say to you now.
“I always speak to the players first before I say who’s playing and they will know.”
