Why Manchester United should keep hold of Dean Henderson

The Daily Mail has revealed that on-loan Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has started to attract a lot of attention after his performances at Sheffield United. The 21-year-old has been in excellent form for the Championship side since joining them and has seen both Bayern Munich and Juventus scout him.

Henderson however, is yet to make a professional appearance for United despite making nine appearances for their U23s, U18s and U19s. That didn’t change the hard-working nature of the player who kept on doing his job in loan spells at Grimsby Town, Shrewsbury Town and now Sheffield United.

But with the likes of Bayern Munich, Tottenham and even Juventus eyeing a deal, things could get complicated for the Red Devils. Henderson, at the moment, does have eighteen months left on his current deal with the Old Trafford side, which also includes an extension option of one year. However, given his current situation, the 21-year-old might consider his chances in the summer window.

But it’s up to Manchester United to keep their youth prodigy with them. Instead of being like Manchester City, the Red Devils need to take the Chelsea approach and put a halt to any move whether now or six months down the line for someone who could easily become their number one goalkeeper in the future.

Like Sheffield United this season, Dean Henderson has been a rock – keeping 10 clean sheets, with only Middlesbrough and Bristol City conceding fewer goals than them. Not only that, this isn’t the first time the 21-year-old has performed better than expected. He was one of the better players on loan at Shrewsbury.

The Red Devils, on the other hand, have endured a renaissance under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. However, David De Gea’s current deal with the club expires at the end of the current season, while both Sergio Romero and Lee Grant have struggled to make any impact whatsoever.

Manchester United are working on tying the former to a new deal, but have made no breakthrough regarding that. The club officials should work hard and tie their best keeper to a new contract and not allow their young prodigy to leave in the summer. The best option would be to recall him at Old Trafford and hand him the number two spot in the squad.

Chelsea Opinion: Blues must move for Robert Lewandowski

According to a recent report by The Sun, Chelsea are said to have started transfer talks with Bayern Munich’s Polish striker Robert Lewandowski about a possible summer move that would see the big striker join Maurizio Sarri’s men.

Despite the Blues being handed a 2-window transfer ban, the announcement of an appeal date has them scrambling to try and complete any possible signings before the ban actually takes effect or in the view of the ban actually being squashed by UEFA. 

The Blues are already said to have started talks with the striker regarding a potential summer move. The Blues need to bring in a striker who has the right attributes and skill-set to consistently score goals in the famous royal blue shirt.

Chelsea have always been a side that has struggled to find striker replacements through the years. This can be seen clearly from some of their purchases over the last decade or so. While desperation has been the cause for a majority of these transfers, bad judgement has played an unsually important part too.

Names such as Herman Crespo, Fernando Torres, Andriy Shevchenko and most recently Alvaro Morata are sure to induce some mixed memories in the minds of Chelsea fans. They were all big-money signings who failed quite heavily to live up to the massive expectations that were placed on them.

Other than Didier Drogba and Spanish forward Diego Costa, none of the other strikers that the Blues have signed over the years have had a real positive impact. Despite the recent loan signing of Argentine star Gonzalo Higuain, Chelsea’s frustrations in front of goal haven’t come any closer to ending.

Robert Lewandowski has the perfect attributes to be the best striking option for Chelsea in today’s market considering that he has the sharp ability to find himself in the right places within the box. His finishing and movement in the final third will come as a refreshing change for the Blues midfielders. 

He has an amazing goalscoring record and has featured in a 104 matches for his country of Poland. With 56 international goals to his name as well, he is the currently-serving captain of the National side. His numbers in the Bundesliga have been commendable as well.

With 21 goals and 11 assists from his 27 Bundesliga appearances this season, Lewandowski has proven than even at the ripe of 30, he still has amazing quality to offer any team. Being one of the best strikers of the last decade, Chelsea will do will to bring the Polish talisman to Stamford Bridge in their attempt to open the goalscoring floodgates.

Dream Arsenal XI for next season featuring 3 potential summer signings – including this French World Cup winner

Arsenal Opinion: Dream Arsenal XI for next season’s Premier League 

Arsenal pulled off some fairly impressive business prior to the start of the current season by bringing in some tough midfielders which has certainly strengthened their core. The addition of a forward like Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has also worked wonders for the Gunners this season. 

Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira were a couple of other players who were brought in as well and both of them have performed exceptionally in the middle of the park. Despite all of these brillIant moves though, their weaknesses have come into light as the season progressed and it’s obvious what areas need to be addressed. 

The need for a winger is quite urgent as Alex Iwobi’s inconsistent displays certainly can’t have filled Unai Emery with a lot of confidence. With the Mirror reporting that Ryan Fraser in on Emery’s radar, he might just have found the perfect solution to the winger issue. 

In defence too, the injury to Hector Bellerin has ousted their defensive depth while the shabby performances being put in by Shkodran Mustafi and Sead Kolasinac haven’t been appreciated either. The Independent are reporting that Barcelona man Samuel Umtiti and Bayern Munich star David Alaba are also being eyed by the Gunners. 

Here’s the possible XI that Unai Emery can pick at the start of next season if all these transfers go through as planned: 

GK – Bernd Leno 

The German international has impressed heavily this season and is expected to keep his place with Petr Cech set to retire as well. 

RB – Hector Bellerin 

The Spaniard’s injury has kept him out this season but with a long future ahead, expect the youngster to return to full-flow very soon. 

RCB – Sokratis Papastathopoulos

The Greek international centre-half has been the only assures head in the Arsenal back-line all season and deserves to keep his place. 

LCB – Samuel Umtiti 

The French World Cup winner has been a regular in the Barcelona XI for a while now and signing him would secure the Gunners’ defence. 

LB – David Alaba 

The 30-year-old Austrian is still one of the best players in his position and provides excellent width going forward as well. 

RM – Henrikh Mkhitaryan 

The Armenian has all the potential to be a superstar at Arsenal and Emery must rejuvenate him next season to challenge for the title. 

RCM – Lucas Torreira 

The Uruguayan midfielder has been sensational since making the switch to North-London and is expected to keep his place. 

LCM – Matteo Guendouzi 

The biggest surprise package of the Premier League season, signed from a Ligue 2 club, the youngster has been an absolute revelation. 

LM – Ryan Fraser 

The Bournemouth speedster has the perfect attributes and the ideal skill-set to excel if deployed in Alex Iwobi’s position on the left-wing. 

RS – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 

The Gabonese forward has been in sensational form all campaign and his place in the team has never really been under scrutiny.

LS – Alexandre Lacazette 

The Frenchman is the Gunners’ most talismanic striker and having him in the side is absolutely essential for them to score goals.

Bayern Munich vs Liverpool Match Report: Liverpool Match Report

Liverpool continued their fine run this season as the Reds progressed to the last 8 of the UEFA Champions League with a comfortable 3-1 victory over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.

With the first leg at Anfield having finished in a 0-0 draw, Bayern were expected to have the upper hand at home and it was the hosts who started off as the brighter of the two teams.

Franck Ribery gave Trent Alexander-Arnold a few worries down the flanks, Thiago blazed a shot over from a promising position and the Liverpool fans would have had their heart in their mouth when Robert Lewandowski was brought down inside the box by Virgil van Dijk.

Having weathered the early storm, Liverpool got themselves back into the game and it was the in-form Sadio Mane who drew first blood for the Reds.

Mane rounded Manuel Neuer with a sumptuous touch and showed a tremendous piece of awareness to dink the ball into the net, giving Liverpool a crucial away goal. Mane was once again in the thick of things as the Senegalese ace teed off Andrew Robertson for a shot a few minutes later.

Bayern, however, found an immediate reply, although it was a Liverpool player who had a major hand in it. Serge Gnabry’s driven cross from the right was put into his own net by Joel Matip, who might have been too much bothered by the presence of Lewandowski.

With the score tied at 1-1, Bayern tried to throw caution to the winds to turn the tie in their favour but the home side were denied by some resolute and disciplined defending from Liverpool.

Mo Salah warmed Neuer’s palms with a driven effort but Bayern probably had the biggest chance early in the second half, Gnabry’s cross from the right just evading a diving Lewandowski.

Liverpool’s front trio continued to cause problems for Bayern at the back and the Reds caught the game by the scruff of the neck midway through the second half, Virgil van Dijk rising over the likes of Javi Martinez and Mats Hummels to head home Milner’s corner in the 69th minute.

Faced with a mountain to climb after having conceded a couple of away goals, Bayern looked absolutely lost and Liverpool looked in total control of the proceedings. Mo Salah produced a magical pass from the outside of his left boot to find Sadio Mane inside the box, who headed it past Neuer to seal the tie.
