In the 48th minute of today’s Premier League clash between rivals Manchester City and Man United, the Red Devils extended their lead to 2-0 with a good shot.
Academy graduate Dean Henderson, who replaces absent David de Gea, showed what he can do if he becomes the permanent No.1 with a massive long throw to Luke Shaw on the left.
Shaw charged forward in a run that blew his lungs out, leaving Joao Cancelo and Kevin de Bruyne behind, before sliding him wide towards Marcus Rashford as he reached the final third.
Rashford showed some control before returning to Shaw, the left-back touched the box before piercing the ball into the bottom corner with a shiny finish, Ederson was left rooted in his place.
