Former Man United goalkeeper Dean Henderson came off injured on Tuesday night in Crystal Palace’s Carabao Cup defeat
Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson is waiting on the results of Dean Henderson’s scan ahead of their second trip to Manchester United this week.
Henderson started on Tuesday night against United for the first time since his summer departure from Old Trafford. However, the 26-year-old only lasted 19 minutes before he pulled up with a muscular injury and was replaced by another ex-Red in Sam Johnstone.
Palace’s night went downhill from there as Alejandro Garnacho and Casemiro quickly asserted United’s authority in the game. Shortly after the break, Anthony Martial put the game beyond doubt with a smart finish at the back post to seal the Reds’ passage to the fourth round.
In a bizarre twist of fate, Palace will return to the Theatre of Dreams this weekend in the Premier League but they could be without Henderson for the trip. Speaking after the match, Hodgson provided an update on his ‘keeper’s fitness and revealed it will be an anxious wait ahead of Saturday’s encounter.
He told reporters: “Not really [any update], because like all those muscle injuries the doctors can tell you which part of the leg the injury occurs in, but are not prepared to give any suggestion on the severity of it. That will need a scan I am sure, and we will have to wait for the result of the scan.
“Often you have to wait a day or two before they can even do the scan. At the minute, we just know he had a very unfortunate end to a game he was really looking forward to playing.”
