Manchester United fans in love with Donny van de Beek after stellar performance

Manchester United fans couldn’t get enough of Donny van de Beek following his impressive performance vs Istanbul Basaksehir in what was a brilliant Champions League night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer watched on as his team hammered their Turkish opponents, running out 4-1 victors on what was a crucial result.

United still have to face PSG and RB Leipzig for the return fixtures but they will do so from a decent position after winning all three points.

Van de Beek didn’t necessarily steal the headlines but his display was remarkable and thankfully it wasn’t lost on the fans either.

The former Ajax star has been rather limited in terms of his appearances or starts this season but it’s safe to say Solskjaer won’t be able to ignore him for much longer.

Van de Beek played in a pivot alongside Fred to a great effect but there are still question marks over that partnership despite the brilliant win.

The young Dutchman displayed impressive defensive capabilities all while being a tidy and creative influence in midfield.

However, Van de Beek and Fred may be a pairing that will struggle in the physicality of the Premier League and so despite his good performance, it’s likely the former will be dropped for the clash vs Southampton on Sunday.

United have had some world class goalkeepers over the years and some entertaining ones too. Take our quiz below to find out how much you know about United’s number 1’s, past and present.
