David De Gea maybe a good goal keeper who have led Manchester United to many tournaments and excelled,but the match against Southampton shows that it maybe time for Dean Henderson to take over from him.

Henderson is just the perfect replacement for De Gea,as we hope the latter recovers from injury very soon.

What do you? Should Ole continue fielding Martial as the main striker instead of Cavani? Are you impressed with the performance of the boys today?
