  Solskjaer eager for better defence as Man Utd go on trophy attack Manchester United have scored more Premier League goals than any other team this season, but their defence is still of concern.United eased into the last 16 of the Europa League on Thursday after a goalless draw with Real Sociedad at Old Trafford secured a 4-0 aggregate victory.

On Wednesday night, the decision was taken out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's hands, with David de Gea missing against Crystal Palace due to personal reasons. In a few months it will be entirely his to make.

Along with which positions to strengthen, settling on who will be Manchester United's No 1 long term will be another of Solskjaer's summer headaches.

De Gea's absence at Palace meant just a third Premier League start for Dean Henderson.

Mostly, he has had to make do with game time in the cups this season. That is not the level of opportunity the England keeper would have expected this season nor, perhaps, what he has deserved.

Man Utd 'will have to pay Cavani £1.75m if they don't extend his deal'

  Man Utd 'will have to pay Cavani £1.75m if they don't extend his deal' The 34-year-old signed a one-year deal with the option of a further year but if the Red Devils opt not to enact that option, the Uruguayan would be due £1.75m (€2m) in compensation.The 34-year-old moved on a free transfer from PSG on transfer deadline day in October, signing a one-year deal with the option of a further year.

Gary Neville believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will soon have to make a decision about the long-term future of Dean Henderson . The MEN understands Henderson is 'frustrated' by his lack of playing time in the Premier League and has no intention of playing second fiddle to David de Gea again next season. Tottenham, Chelsea and West Ham United have expressed interest in Henderson but United value the goalkeeper at £40million as the 23-year-old is contracted to the club until 2025.

It certainly will not cut it next season. Henderson, 23, has ambitions for club and country and another season of playing second fiddle won't satisfy a stopper whose admirable determination to get out and play has been a feature of his young career.

Each was cut adrift by some of England’s biggest clubs (and Charlton). Sometimes it was down to timing. Occasionally, club politics played a part. A few of them were just a bit rubbish. In any case, each found a new home and then Champions League success with a different club...

In the main this season Solskjaer has preferred the safer option of the two, De Gea's pedigree and experience earning the 30-year-old the nod.

Henderson though is the future and a more positive, commanding and communicative goalkeeper, qualities appreciated by his team-mates.

Tuchel claims ref 'did everything right' in Man United penalty drama

  Tuchel claims ref 'did everything right' in Man United penalty drama Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has backed referee Stuart Attwell's decision to brush VAR aside and deny Manchester United a penalty against the Blues on Sunday. The hosts dominated much of the Stamford Bridge clash but couldn't find a breakthrough, coming away with a point after a 0-0 draw. United were furious not to have been awarded a penalty in the first-half when Callum Hudson-Odoi and Mason Greenwood duelled for the ball, which bounced up and appeared to hit both players' arms inside the 18-yard box.

Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has transfer plan that Dean Henderson disagrees with. Manchester United have confirmed that goalkeeper Dean Henderson has signed a long-term contract extension. Chris Wilder had outlined his plans to keep Henderson at the club for a third season. His intentions then hit a snag as Sheffield United turned attention towards their former goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale. Ramsdale was Bournemouth's Player of the Year last season despite being relegated with the Cherries.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer disagrees with Dean Henderson 's plan for next season. The 23-year-old goalkeeper emerged as one of the Premier League's top stoppers while on loan at Sheffield United last term. “This season has proved a great experience for him, he’s done himself some favours with his performances and proved he will be England’s No.1 and Man United’s No.1 at some point.” Henderson is an ambitious individual and is determined to take De Gea's place in goal .

Right at the death, Henderson spared United defeat with a brilliant one-on-one-save to deny Patrick Van Aanholt.

Before that, his handling was faultless with a couple of confident and pressure-relieving claims, exactly the sort defenders always welcome.

Is he United's future specifically over the long-serving De Gea? That is Solskjaer's call to make.

As United legend Gary Neville said when the No 1 position was brought up in a Twitter Q&A on Wednesday: 'A big decision is coming soon.'
