Henderson puts in masterclass day after De Gea nightmare as Forest beat West Ham

Dean Henderson well and truly sent a message to Manchester United the day after David de Gea had a nightmare time against Brentford.

Henderson, on loan at Nottingham Forest from the Red Devils, saved a penalty and made a number of world class saves as his new side beat West Ham 1-0.

De Gea, on the other hand, had a shocker against Brentford on Saturday, handing them two goals in a 4-0 drubbing.

The England international has been very outspoken about his treatment at United, criticising the club for not allowing him to leave after initially promising him the number one spot.

He gave that explosive interview to talkSPORT and was a man on a mission against West Ham.

Henderson put in a big performance for his loan club on what was a special day as they hosted a Premier League match at the City Ground for the first time in 23 year.

It was all the Hammers early on as they put the home side under pressure, their fans were also keen to make a point to Jesse Lingard.

A section of the West Ham supporters threw fake money at the midfielder after he opted to join the newly promoted side.

The visitors thought they had taken the lead three minutes before the break as a quick counter-attack led to Declan Rice playing in Said Benrahma, who slotted coolly into the corner.

However, the goal was ruled out after referee Robert Jones checked the pitchside monitor and awarded a foul by Michail Antonio on Orel Mangala as Forest survived.

Perhaps inevitably, moments later it was Forest who took the lead.

Harry Toffolo surged into the area and cut back for Jesse Lingard, who looked destined to score but could not make a proper connection. However, his weak shot fell straight into the path of Taiwo Awoniyi, who bundled home.

An action-packed start to the second half saw West Ham hit the crossbar twice and Forest have a goal ruled out by VAR for offside.

The first of those was a Pablo Fornals shot that hit the bar and bounced out to Tomas Soucek only for Henderson to make a brilliant save from his header.

Brennan Johnson had the ball in the back of the net for Forest and VAR correctly made the intervention to chalk the goal off for offside.

The Hammers had another great chance to draw level as they were awarded a 64th-minute penalty after Scott McKenna handled Tomas Soucek’s shot.

But Henderson stepped up and kept out Declan Rice’s spot-kick to keep his side in front.

Chants of ‘England’s No.1’ rang out around the City Ground, with Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate watching on from the stands.
