De Gea or Henderson? Former Manchester United star tells Solskjaer the goalkeeper to use this season

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rotated between David De Gea and Dean Henderson for most of last season.

Henderson was in goal for 13 Premier League games, and was a regular in the Europa League, with De Gea keeping in the final.

Former Manchester United winger Lee Sharpe has urged Solskjaer to settle on a back four, and he believes that De Gea still has the quality to be United’s number one.

He said in an interview with Metro: “They have an incredible depth of goalkeepers at Old Trafford but I still think De Gea is one of the world’s best. Yes, he’s had a couple of dodgy spells but I think every goalkeeper goes through that.

“I would still trust him to play any game that Ole picks him but I still think the other two goalkeepers will keep him on his toes.

“I think we’ve seen that Henderson is a top drawer keeper and well worthy of a No.1 spot. I think Ole would be getting paid the big money to make the big decisions. They are tough decisions because you don’t want to upset any of them and want to keep the confidence.”

Solskjaer has a big decision to make among his two goalkeepers, and Sharpe thinks it’s one of the toughest decisions he’d make this season.

He added: “It’s difficult because the back four and goalkeeper rarely get changed because that’s the sort of consistency in a team that breeds success when you’ve got that stability at the back when they all know what they’re doing and who’s doing what.

“They’re very difficult positions to keep changing, but yea that’s one of Ole’s toughest decisions to make this year.”
