Tom Heaton is Manchester United's third choice goalkeeper and he is behind English goalkeeper, Dean Henderson and Spanish Goalkeeper, David de Gea in the pecking order. David de Gea has been starting in all of Manchester United matches this season and as such, fatigue may set in anytime.
But nevertheless there are good replacements in the form of Dean Henderson and Tom Heaton. Tom Heaton was a legitimate first choice Goalkeeper for Aston Villa before joining Manchester United last summer and he kept a few clean sheets while playing alongside Argentine goalkeeper, Emiliano Martinez in the team. Also, Tom Heaton has played for Manchester United before, during the initial stages of his career so he will see it as a honor to play once more for the Red Devils if he is selected. Also, there is no need for Heaton to remain on the bench anymore because his wealth of experience can go a long way in helping the squad.
