Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has admitted that Dean Henderson is putting pressure on first-choice goalkeeper, David de Gea.

Henderson, according to Solskjaer, has been improving since he returned to Old Trafford from Sheffield United.

Henderson spent two years at Bramall Lane and has made 10 appearances this season, unable to dislodge De Gea as No.1.

De Gea was at fault for Everton’s first goal during the 3-3 draw on Saturday and was also criticized for the late equalizer.

Ahead of Tuesday’s FA Cup fifth round tie with West Ham, Solskjaer has said the gap between his two goalkeepers is getting smaller.

“For me, [Henderson] has developed his game.

“I know he’s not played as many games as he would’ve done last season — you see every game when he plays and in training you see his improvement, working hard on a couple of aspects that we’ve spoken about. And I’ve been impressed with his attitude and work rate.

“Every player has to earn the right to earn his place of course. We are a squad with competition and that applies to absolutely every single one in the team. And that is the same for every single one of us.

“He’s played well when he’s got the chance,” Solskjaer said.
