Cumbrian Dean Henderson was backed to force Jordan Pickford out of the English side

Manchester United goalkeeper, from Whitehaven, hopes to win his first senior cap for his country in the next two weeks

Henderson is one of three goalkeepers for Gareth Southgate’s squad for matches against Wales, Belgium and Denmark

Former Welsh international Robbie Savage believes ex-Carlisle goalkeeper Acdemy Henderson, 23, could overthrow Pickford

This follows another mistake by former United lender Pickford in Everton’s 4-2 win over Brighton

BT Sport expert Savage said: « Pickford didn’t have much else to do But it’s a terrible mistake

« I think Dean Henderson will play in one of those three games [for England] I would say if Henderson does well he could have his place »

England face Wales this Thursday before hosting Belgium next Sunday, then Denmark the following Wednesday Burnley’s Nick Pope is also in the ranks of Southgate goalkeepers

Henderson has made two first-team appearances for Man Utd in the Carabao Cup this season as he presses David De Gea for the No.1 regular position at Old Trafford

He was named to the bench by boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for their last top game against Tottenham

Former Red Devils forward Dimitar Berbatov believes Henderson will succeed De Gea in due course – but may have to be patient

Berbatov told Betfair: « I see rumors that Dean Henderson could replace David de Gea I love Dean He has made some big saves in his career, he has a good frame of mind and he will eventually replace De Gea

“For me however, De Gea is still one of the best goalkeepers in the world, and he still has plenty of time for a goalkeeper. He has saved the club so many times and been a great servant, and he can still start games for now at least

« He’s got a great competition at Dean, and that should help him keep going, but I don’t think the time is right for a change. He’s under huge pressure, like if he makes a mistake or two people will start to talk

« Maybe Dean will have his chance in the Cup, or in Europe, or maybe it will be this weekend, but this level of competition is good for the club »

Writing in The Times, he said: « Last season wasn’t his best and there’s this idea that Dean Henderson suddenly has ‘real competition’

« I don’t think that’s true: people forget that David has had a top-level goalkeeper behind him for the last five years at Sergio Romero So that he can face the competition

« The difference with Henderson is that since he’s English there will be a lot of media out there pushing him to play

« Henderson clearly has character in him and I imagine he will talk to Ole and say ‘put me in’

« If David makes the mistakes he made last year, I’m sure Henderson will have opportunities – but don’t bet against David having a really good season. »
