Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson makes absolute HOWLER to concede lead vs former club Sheffield United December 17, 2020 – Posted in: Soccer
Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson was handed just his third Premier League appearance of the season by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this evening – and it couldn’t have got off to a worse start.
The 23-year-old, who impressed in his two seasons on loan with Sheffield United before returning to Old Trafford last summer, made an absolute howler to give Chris Wilder’s rock-bottom side the lead.
There was no sign of danger when Harry Maguire played a return pass to Henderson but he dawdled enough for Oliver Burke to close him down and flick into the path of David McGoldrick to fire home from close range.
It was a remarkable error by the former Sheffield United loanee, whose brief hopes of the goal being ruled out by the video assistant referee were ended when a potential handball was ruled against.

The Blades’ lead was short lived, however, as Marcus Rashford struck just over 20 minutes later to level the scoreline.
Wilder’s men have had a disastrous start to the season having earned just one point from their opening 12 matches prior to Man United’s visit to Bramall Lane.
