The Premier League confirmed the own goal was awarded to Henderson.

Dean Henderson's Blunder Costs Crystal Palace Goal In Victory Over West Ham

Crystal Palace goalkeeper Dean Henderson endured a moment of embarrassment as his mistake led to a goal against West Ham, although it came late in a 5-2 victory for the Eagles. The error occurred when Palace defender Tyrick Mitchell passed the ball back to Henderson, who was unpressured.

However, Henderson misjudged the bounce, allowing the ball to pass under his foot and into the net. Despite the mistake, which was officially credited as an own goal by Mitchell, Palace had already secured the win by the 89th minute. Fans took to social media to criticize Henderson, with one calling it a “sickening goalkeeper mistake” and another labeling it “totally rubbish.”

The situation worsened for Henderson when the Premier League confirmed that the own goal had been awarded to him due to his mis-kick following Mitchell’s backpass. Henderson’s blunder came shortly after Blackburn goalkeeper Aynsley Pears scored an own goal in a Championship match against Sheffield Wednesday, adding to the weekend’s goalkeeping woes.
