Statistics have shown that Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek was one of our best performers in our 3-2 win over Southampton on Sunday.

The Dutchman was influential throughout the game and proved his worth to the team.

Here are 6 key stats that show his impact in his first Premier League start for the club

  • 100% dribble success
  • 82% pass accuracy
  • 10 ball recoveries
  • 4 tackles won
  • 2 fouls won
  • 1 block

United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has used Van de Beek sparingly this season, but in recent games where he has been well utilised, the Dutchman has proven that he is a quality player.
