Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek was handed a rare start in Manchester United’s FA Cup game against West Ham on Tuesday night.

The Dutch international was substituted for Bruno Fernandes in the 73rd minute as Manchester United searched for the winner.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has rated Van de Beek’s performance against West Ham.

Solskjaer said: “I thought, first half, we and Donny, we played really well.

“We created spaces for one or two and he played his part and did his job really well.

“He was neat and tidy and had half a chance when Alex [Telles] pulled the ball back to him.

“In the second half, the whole team fell off a little bit and we wanted to make a few changes.”
