The 24-year-old has become the club's first-choice shot-stopper in recent weeks, with former number-one David de Gea being reduced to appearances in cup competition.
Henderson has, to his credit, produced a number of fine displays for United of late but after being at fault for Liverpool's third and fourth goals on Thursday night, Keane admitted he has doubts over his 'presence'.

In a segment on Sky Sports after the game, Keane did not hold back.
"He looks so small in the goals, that's my worry [over] Henderson," he said.
"He has a good mentality, good temperament and is good with his feet, but I've seen a few goals go in recently where he looks so small in the goals. He looked tiny there for the fourth goal.
"He has been given a run of games. Tonight he may look at it and go 'it's not my best night', but he needs a run of games.
"They can't go back to De Gea, I don't think that's the final answer either. He [Henderson] is going to make mistakes of course, but my worry is his presence.
"He looks so small, which is a big concern going forward."

Back in April, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suggested the club have two number 1's, but Keane wasn't having any of it.
"I wouldn't agree with Ole, I think he sees Dean Henderson as his number one now," he told Sky Sports.
"He's given him a run of games - okay, he played De Gea in the week, which was a comfortable game. He's given Dean his trust in him now to play in the big games
"He's certainly going to get until the end of the season, unless he has a complete disaster, so I think De Gea is under huge pressure now to try and get his position back in the team."

As soon as he said, it the camera panned to the Spanish Goalkeeper having a nightmare in the warm up. Incredible timing! :sweat_smile:https://t.co/nt9UUz1JOp
