Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has defended his decision not to play Donny van de Beek in our goalless draw against Chelsea on Saturday.

The Dutchman was an unused substitute at Old Trafford, and his lack of playing time has been criticized by former United captain Gary Neville who feels the player will be regretting moving to Old Trafford.

Speaking on Sky Sports about Donny van de Beek’s lack of game time, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave assurances that the player will eventually get his chance.

He said: “Don’t worry about that.

“He will get his games — it is easy [for the media] to say who should be playing, but more difficult to say who shouldn’t.”
