Henderson is expected to given the nod in the second-leg Champions League fixture against Istanbul Basaksehir at Old Trafford.
“Dean wants to stay at Man United and play for Man United,” Solskjaer said on Henderson.
“I can’t see the logic in (suggestions there is) only one potential appearance left before Christmas. Do you know how many games we’ve got?
“I disagree completely if (you are suggesting) tomorrow is a make-or-break (moment) for Dean.
“He’s come back in, he is training really well, he’s maturing. He’s had some games.
“He’s training with, for me, one of the best goalkeepers in the world. He’s got potential to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world. It’s a great competition between them.
“I don’t buy that argument that it’s a make or break for him.
“It’s not up to me to keep everyone happy, you know. I’ve said that a few times. The performances will always be the deciding factor if you play or not.
“I think every position that you play for Man United, it is your duty or your responsibility to make me and the coaches happy, so then there’s a bigger chance you can play next time.”
