Watch Man Utd goalkeeper Dean Henderson's howler to give former club Sheffield United the lead at Bramall Lane

DEAN HENDERSON endured a nightmare return to Bramall Lane as his howler gifted Sheffield United the easiest of goals against Manchester United.

The England goalkeeper – who spent the past two seasons on loan at the Blades – handed the hosts the lead just under five minutes into the game.

With seemingly no threat posed to the Man Utd goal, Harry Maguire played a short pass back to Henderson.

With Oliver Burke quickly closing in, the goalkeeper – starting in place of David De Gea – hesitated rather than putting his boot through the ball.

Burke got a tackle in, blocking Henderson's attempted clearance.

The Red Devils stopper then stumbled as he battled to beat Burke to the loose ball.

Eventually, it fell for David McGoldrick who was free to fire the ball into an empty net.

The blunder will be a massive blow for Henderson, who had been hoping to steal the No1 jersey from De Gea permanently this season.

However, having been limited to mainly cup games, Henderson would have been keen to put on a strong showing at his old stomping ground.

After the error, Clinton Morrison told BBC 5 Live Sport: "Tonight was a mistake from Dean Henderson.

"It is not good the way Manchester United keep conceding early goals.

"It is something Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will want to address.

"When you are coming in for the regular No1, you want a nice, easy night.

"Henderson needs to put it to the back of his mind now."
