Henderson has only played three matches for United so far this season.
The 25-year-old has not played at all in the Premier League so far this season.
He was expected to be first choice for United this season but he contracted Covid-19 in pre-season.
Due to the illness, Henderson missed the start of the season and could not play for two months.
Henderson’s illness allowed De Gea to keep his place as first choice this season.
De Gea has performed very well for United this season and could be nominated for the player of the year award.
