On Loan Manchester United Goalkeeper Dean Henderson Gifts Liverpool Win Over Sheffield United

Liverpool's 100% record in the Premier League this season continued on Saturday thanks to Dean Henderson's gaffe in goal for Sheffield United.

Jurgen Klopp's side were made to work extremely hard at Bramall Lane, with Chris Wilder's side having their own opportunities to strike, before Gini Wijnaldum's 70th minute volley, from the edge of the area, was spilled into the goal by Henderson, on loan from Liverpool's rivals Manchester United for the season.

Liverpool had a couple of guilt-edged chances in the first half, especially as Roberto Firmino had the chance to shoot as he cut inside, only to pass to Sadio Mane and see the Senegalese forward hit the post, when it seemed easier to score.

But Wilder's side equipped themselves well throughout and often hit the Reds on the break, only to be thwarted by excellent defending from the visiting side.

That was especially true of John Fleck's effort, just minutes before the breakthrough, with the Scot cutting back in the box to shoot, only to see it blocked by Andy Robertson.

Henderson has been touted as a future number one for Manchester United, his parent club, and there was certainly a mixed reaction to his mistake.

Henderson did slightly make amends just minutes after he'd conceded as he brilliantly saved from Mo Salah with the Egyptian running free one-on-one with the keeper.

It wasn't enough to deny Liverpool three points as Klopp's side go marching on, winning ugly, and moving to 21 points from 21.

Is this really their year? With fortune like Saturday it might just be.
