Manchester United fans were full of praise Donny van de Beek after his man-of-the-match performance vs Watford in the FA Cup.
The young Dutchman was the best of the rest in the sense that not too many of his teammates impressed during the 1-0 victory.
That’s not to take anything away from Van de Beek who proved just what he can bring to the table and will surely have given Ole Gunnar Solskjaer something to consider.
Fans have been calling for the talented midfielder to be handed more minutes and their calls were finally answered.
It’s safe to say Van de Beek also gave them what they wanted to see and now all eyes will be on Solskjaer to see whether he’s been impressed or not.
What did you think of Donny van de Beek’s performance? Silky smooth for me.

Donny van de Beek: tiki taka, one touch expert, flicks, vision and won the ball back more than any other player tonight. The more he plays, the better he’ll get.

Donny van de Beek simply has to be starting more games, he is too good to be sitting on the bench all the time. pic.twitter.com/NjzlMbLMf0

Donny van de Beek is one smart man, he's such a silky footballer. Brings a different dimension to our midfield.

As the fans say, Van de Beek was not just dangerous but was also efficient and should he grow in his role, he could prove to be a real asset.
For whatever reason, the former Ajax man hasn’t shown Solskjaer exactly what he wants but there’s no reason to panic over it either.
Van de Beek will benefit from a season of adjusting and it’s clear to see he has the quality needed to succeed at Old Trafford.
