Steve Cooper believes the best is yet to come from Dean Henderson

Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper thinks there could be even more to  come from Dean Henderson as the goalkeeper showed Manchester United what  they are missing in the 1-0 win over West Ham.

On a weekend where United number one David De Gea was at fault for two  goals in the 4-0 humbling at Brentford, Henderson was a star player for  Forest as they won their first home game back in the Premier League for  23 years.

United loanee Henderson said in an explosive pre-season interview that  he was “fuming” at the way he was treated at Old Trafford, claiming he  had been promised the number one spot following his return from a loan  at Sheffield United.

And the 25-year-old backed up his words against the Hammers by saving  Declan Rice’s penalty and producing several other key stops to ensure a  clean sheet.

Boss Cooper did not want to get involved in the Old Trafford politics, but was impressed with how his goalkeeper played.

“I’m not interested in that, in terms of his performance he was  excellent, he looked a really good goalkeeper, the obvious thing is the  penalty save and the other saves he made,” he said.

“His distribution and decision-making was good. I thought tactically he  was good with his positioning. He did well, he did well last week, did  well this week and we need him to do well next week.

“At times you need goalkeepers to have big moments, like you need strikers to have big moments.

“Dean had some big moments but that is his job, he did it well. He will  review the game properly with the goalkeeping staff and working even  harder to keep improving.”

Had it not been for Henderson’s heroics, the Hammers, who also hit the  crossbar twice, would have got their season up and running.

Instead boss David Moyes was left to reflect on successive defeats and a  feeling of his side not quite being up to the level yet.

They begin their European adventure in the Europa Conference League  play-off first leg against Danish side Viborg and Moyes does not see it  as a distraction.
