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.
