Having signed from Ajax earlier this summer, fans have been forced to wait to see their new Dutch midfielder get his first domestic start after the versatile playmaker has had to make use of substitute appearances.
Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s mouth-watering domestic match-up, Solskjaer addressed the possibility of fans seeing van de Beek in action, he said: “Donny’s fit enough but of course it’s competition for places, it’s giving him time to settle in and adjust to his new teammates, it’s a new league.
“He’s an absolutely top footballer and personality, so humble and hard-working but also, of course, eager to play more.
“You’ll see him throughout the season, it’s going to be a long, long season and he’s impressed me. You’ll see him.”
