Manchester United fans are a happy bunch today as Donny van de Beek finally gets a start in the Premier League.
The Netherlands international has endured a slow start to life at Old Trafford since his summer move from Ajax, despite often looking a classy performer whenever he has got on the pitch.
It’s taken some time for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to trust him with a place in his starting XI, but he does seem to be getting more playing time now, which fans are clearly pleased with.
See below for the full Man Utd XI to take on Southampton today…
