Video: Solskjaer gives glowing report of Van de Beek performance v Watford

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave Donny van de Beek a chance to shine tonight against Watford in the FA Cup.

The Dutchman did exactly that while operating in a deeper midfield position than the role he’d prefer.

Van de Beek is brilliant in tight spaces and Solskjaer credits him on that in his post-match press conference, as seen below.

Fans will be asking how long must we wait until Van de Beek is playing regularly, but I don’t think anyone can complain when we’re winning football matches.

The league table looks good right now and it will look even better if we beat Burnley on Tuesday night.

I would expect Bruno Fernandes and Fred to come back into the starting line-up versus Burnley.

Paul Pogba was another player left out tonight albeit due to injury.

  1. I’m still not convinced Ole wanted Van De Beek or fully trusts him. But when you have to choose between him and a player who wants to leave or a player with more physical attributes but less technical I know who I would pick and that is Donny. He could play beside Fred and be the link to Bruno and the forwards. He really is a talented player.
