Solskjaer insists De Gea, Henderson will share Man Utd goalkeeping duties

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists he'll share the goalkeeping duties between David de Gea and Dean Henderson.

Solskjaer expects De Gea and Henderson to share the goalkeeping duties at Manchester United for the remainder of the season.

Henderson played in the last six games before the international break after De Gea returned to Spain for the birth of his first child.

"I have the great option of two top goalkeepers and it's a pleasure to have them here," said Solskjaer. "We've got nine plus five games to go. I'm sure you'll see both of them playing in goal for us.

"I understand the question and the narrative in the media. There's always tension where there can be potential tension and controversy, that's why everyone wants to hear a comment from me.

"I've got great options with both of them but that'll be decided on merit and we have to think who's going to give us a win on any given day.

"The two keepers will probably be needed in these last nine plus hopefully five more games and know we value them both really highly. It's easy to give the nod they'll play, but it's difficult to leave one of them out."
