Dean Henderson played for Sheffield United in the Premier League Season 2019/20 on loan and has just signed a contract with Manchester United until 2025. That shows what a quality goalkeeper he is. Everyone knows how well he played with Sheffield United. With regards to the formation of 5-4-1; there would be two attacking wing backs. It’s actually a fairly attacking formation, which requires a goalkeeper of Dean Henderson’s calibre!
Kyle Walker of Manchester City would be suited to playing as an attacking right wing back, because he is capable of making marauding runs forward.
Antonio Rudiger played for Chelsea is a player that has the capability of being the best central defender in the Premier League. The formation would showcase Rudiger’s defensive ability.
Victor Lindelof from Manchester United would be extremely good in this formation as he is a good centre back.
Nathan Ake from Bournemouth is a natural fit for this formation.
Andrew Robertson of Liverpool is suited to playing as a left wing back.
Nemanja Matic of Manchester United would play as a defensive central midfielder.
Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City is a player that has the capability of creating goal scoring opportunities. As De Bruyne played a role in 36 goals for Manchester City, either scoring or providing an assist he would be a good fit.

James Maddison from Leicester City has the capability of playing as an attacking midfielder.
Marcus Rashford from Manchester United that scored 17 goals and provided eight assists in the Premier League Season 2019/20. Rashford would be suited as playing as the sole striker in this system.
