Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson is waiting on the results of Dean Henderson’s scan ahead of their second trip to Manchester United this week.
Henderson made his first start against United on Tuesday since leaving Old Trafford in the summer. The 26-year-old, however, was replaced by Sam Johnstone, another ex-Red, after only 19 minutes due to a muscular ailment.
Thereafter, Palace’s night took a turn for the worse as Alejandro Garnacho and Casemiro swiftly established United’s dominance of the match.
Anthony Martial quickly after the break sealed the Reds’ advancement to the fourth round with a deft finish at the back post.
Palace will visit the Theatre of Dreams again this Saturday in the Premier League, but they might not have Henderson with them.
Hodgson gave an update on his ‘keeper’s health after the game and said there will be a wait with trepidation before the game on Saturday.
He told reporters: “Not really [any update], because like all those muscle injuries the doctors can tell you which part of the leg the injury occurs in, but are not prepared to give any suggestion on the severity of it. That will need a scan I am sure, and we will have to wait for the result of the scan.
“Often you have to wait a day or two before they can even do the scan. At the minute, we just know he had a very unfortunate end to a game he was really looking forward to playing.”
