Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opened up about the difficult decision he has to make over who his No1 keeper will be moving forward.
Dean Henderson has played in the Red Devils’ last seven games, including against Brighton at the weekend despite the return of De Gea to the first team set-up.
Will he stick or twist tonight? Here is what the Man Utd boss had to say.
He said: “With the keepers, that’s the same, I’ve got two very, very good options and whoever plays will play well, I’m sure. I cannot prioritise the league, Europa League, every game here is the most important, the next one is the most important one.
“Every time I try to explain to players why they don’t play in this particular game and what they need to do, what my plans are for them, all those discussions remain private.
“David has been a top, top ‘keeper and is still a top, top ‘keeper and he’s working to be ready when he plays. If it’s Dean or David, I’m confident in them to play. When you’re a part of Man United, players are always going to come in, they don’t just come in to fill the bench or the squad, everyone’s got ambition to take your shirt.
“It’s the same at right-back, left-back, centre forward, goalkeeper. David has had 10 fantastic years at Man United, and he’s had challenges. Sergio [Romero] probably played less games than he deserved, Dean comes in and always gives it his all and his best. David does as well and it’s a healthy competition.”
