Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks set to stick with Cumbrian goalkeeper Dean Henderson for Manchester United's next Premier League clash.

The Whitehaven star came in for some criticism for AC Milan's late leveller in Thursday's 1-1 Europa League draw.

Solskjaer admitted it was the sort of chance Henderson is capable of saving - but he also said Man Utd should have defended the corner better.

And with David de Gea self-isolating following his return to England after attending the birth of his daughter in Spain, Henderson should get another chance to impress against West Ham on Sunday.

Man Utd were pegged back as Simon Kjaer's injury-time header beat Henderson in Thursday's first leg.

"Very disappointed to conceded with one of the last kicks of the ball, or head," Solskjaer said afterwards.

"That makes it harder of course, but it was always going to be going down to the second game there, anyway.

"I've seen him [Henderson] save them, but it's the structure that we lose. We dropped too deep and we get blocked off and they get the header on.

"We should have attacked the ball with the men we had there."

Solskjaer today confirmed De Gea was back in Manchester self-isolating, and was "touch and go" for Sunday's game, with the Spaniard yet to return to training.

His recent absence has given former Carlisle United academy keeper Henderson a run of games as he bids to prove he can be Man Utd's long-term No1.

Red Devils legend Paul Scholes, speaking on BT Sport, said of the Milan game: "It’s early [in his Man Utd first-team career] - now he has to respond to that.

"He has a great chance to play for the next four or five weeks, do really well and make the manager pick him every week and then tell David: ‘Look, I’m sorry but there’s no way I can leave this boy out’."

Scholes' fellow former Man Utd player Owen Hargreaves added: "He [Henderson] is a confident young man and he’ll realise that’s one he should have saved.

"He couldn’t see it, there were so many people in front of him but let’s be honest, Milan deserved something from the game."

Henderson has come in for praise from the likes of Roy Keane, Edwin Van Der Sar and Jamie Carragher in recent weeks.

The Cumbrian's first-team progress at Old Trafford is also benefiting Carlisle financially through the terms of the deal struck between the clubs in 2011 when Henderson was 14.
