Henderson brilliantly foiled Alexis Saelemaekers and sub Zlatan Ibrahimovic as United beat AC Milan 1-0 in Italy to reach the quarter-finals 2-1 on aggregate.

His near-flawless performance was just as important as Paul Pogba’s match-winner on the midfielder’s comeback from injury as a sub.

And it left Scholes in no doubt that Henderson, 24, has finally usurped De Gea, who returned to United’s squad after a fortnight’s paternity leave.

Asked on BT Sport to name United’s top stopper, ex-England midfielder Scholes replied: “I think it’s Henderson. I think he has taken it over. 

“I thought David had been lucky after the Everton game to keep his place, I thought there were a couple of mistakes where he could have done better.

“There had been a few things before that, a couple of things after that.

“Not glaring and obvious mistakes, but I just feel a bit more confident with Henderson in there.

“He seems a little bit more relaxed.

“David has been an amazing keeper for United, he’s been brilliant and he still will be if Dean doesn’t take his chance. 

“I just think the time has come to give Henderson a run of games in the team and see how he does. 

“I think he possibly should be No1 for England if he carries on this form.”
