Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised goalkeeper Dean Henderson for his performance in the 2-0 victory over Manchester City on Sunday.

Solskjaer told Sky Sports: “He’s just growing, getting more mature, so very, very happy with him. His presence out there, you know there’s a future top, top keeper out there.”

Solskjaer was also impressed with the performance of Anthony Martial against Manchester City.

“I thought Anthony was absolutely superb today,” Solskjaer added. “He was more of the Anthony of old. He turns, gets hold of it. And to think he was a doubt this morning, until two hours after the warm-up I wasn’t sure if he was going to be playing or not. The same with Luke.

“Today he rediscovered himself I feel. He was really strong on the ball, positive and that’s what it’s about. We have to be positive and play at a high-tempo, of course we do.”
