Although Nottingham Forest is actively battling to stay in the Premier League and avoid relegation, Dean Henderson has had himself a proper start to the season.
His performance against Liverpool on Saturday granted the Tricky Trees three points, a prime demonstration.
Dean Henderson’s class performance vs. Liverpool
The 25-year-old goalkeeper was Forest’s man of the match after saving every shot that came his way in a 1-0 home victory against Liverpool.
Seven shots on target weren’t enough to beat the former Red Devil.

The last save, though? Undoubtedly the best.
Henderson’s huge last minute save to seal Nottingham Forest’s victory
Henderson’s best save came after a Liverpool corner kick in the 92nd minute.
This header from Virgil van Dijk would’ve granted the Reds a point in any other situation. In Saturday's game? Not quite.

Absolutely mental from Henderson.
We'll see if these types of performances can keep Nottingham Forest in the Premier League and if they're enough for Henderson to earn a starting spot for Manchester United in the future. So far, so good.
