Manchester United rounded up their final Champions League group game with a 1-1 home draw against Young Boys at Old Trafford.

Interim boss, Ralf Rangnick made quite a number of changes to his starting eleven they featured against Crystal Palace as he fielded the majority of United youngsters and also an opportunity to rotate his squad.

In the absence of David De Gea, the  Englishman was presented with a rare opportunity against the Switzerland side. He did put up some brilliant save on the night, but would not be happy with Donny van de Beek’s role in the Young Boys equaliser.

Young Boys needed something special from Fabian Rieder, who fired an unstoppable curling effort into the top corner on the stroke of half-time to beat Henderson.

The 24-year-old did put up a commanding performance which highlighted the need for him to be playing regular first-team football.

His handling was perfect and he was quick out of line when asked.  He did not finish the 90 minutes in his second appearance of the season, as Rangnick handed Tom Heaton his Manchester United debut midway through the second half.

Manchester United are reportedly planning to send Henderson on loan next year, as he longs for more playing time.
