Dean Henderson’s time to shine?
David de Gea had started in all of Manchester United’s 28 previous league games this season, with Henderson very much on the fringes.
And though United have not been in great form, it is fair to say that De Gea has been their most consistent player for several months now.
As for Henderson, he has not started a league game for United since the end of last season, but with De Gea sidelined and Saturday’s game a huge one for the Manchester outfit, could this be the time Henderson wins over Ralf Rangnick?
Manchester United head into the match two points above Spurs. However, the Lilywhites have two games in hand on United already, meaning a loss on Saturday would likely be detrimental to their already diminishing chances of securing a top-four berth this term.
