Dean Henderson kept a clean sheet to help Manchester United to an emphatic win in Europe.

The talented Cumbrian marked his 12th start for the Red Devils with a shut-out as Man Utd eased to a 4-0 win over Real Sociedad in Turin.

The Europa League last-32 first leg tie was the Whitehaven-born keeper's latest chance to impress.

The former Carlisle United academy keeper is hoping to edge past David de Gea and become the club's regular first-choice No1.

Speaking ahead of the tie, the 23-year-old said: “I’ve just got to keep ticking along, keep doing well and my best is yet to come.

"I’ll keep waiting for those opportunities to come and hopefully I can build a bit of momentum and show my best form.”

Henderson admitted it was a blow that Man Utd were out of the Champions League but said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side now wanted to win the Europa League.

Tonight's game saw them launch that bid.

Speaking to Man Utd's official website in the build-up, he added: “Real Sociedad are a great team and I’m sure it’s going to be really difficult.

"Obviously the boys will have played against [David] Silva a lot and Adnan [Januzaj] was here as a kid, so he’s a got a lot of ability.

“They’ll be very good and they’ll be at it and in our faces and won’t make it easy for us. We’ve got to be on our toes and ready for what’s coming.”

It is a fifth different competition in which Henderson has played for Man Utd, the Cumbrian having already featured in the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup.

“Trophies are massive at this football club,” he added. "They're well overdue and we definitely want to win something this season."
