Man Utd fans react as Dean Henderson’s blunder hands Liverpool victory

Premiership Picks

Oh dear, Dean Henderson. The 22-year-old played a key role in Sheffield United’s return to the top-flight, conceding just 41 goals last season in the Championship – the joint-lowest of any side.

There were suggestions earlier this summer that the goalkeeper would return to his parent club Manchester United and compete with David de Gea for the number one spot, but he ended up moving back to Bramall Lane on another season-long loan.

On Saturday afternoon, the England U21 international came up against Liverpool, who had been firing on all cylinders this season with six wins from six in the Premier League.

However, Henderson and his Blades teammates held firm for the majority of the clash and looked on course for an impressive draw and clean sheet. Until, a massive moment to forget.

Georginio Wijnaldum’s effort from outside the box squirmed away from Henderson’s grasp and rolled agonisingly over the line, with the goal proving to be the difference at the end of the match.

After seeing his massive gaffe, Red Devils fans flooded to Twitter to voice their thoughts on their loanee.

Many supporters of the Manchester side insisted the club and its players are somehow finding new ways of letting the fans down.

Some fans insisted the howler proved exactly why Henderson isn’t good enough to be in the United set-up right now, with one supporter in particular calling for him to be sold.
