Man Utd's Van de Beek revels in deeper role in Pogba's absence

Van de Beek celebrates his debut goal against Crystal Palace

The midfielder who started alongside Fred in the midfield and has reflected on the victory while hailing the team's attack.

Paul Scholes believes Donny van de Beek's best position is as a deep-lying midfielder after his impressive performance against Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League.

A move to Turin would see Van de Beek reunite with Matthijs de Ligt and also find Andrea Pirlo, who would probably "value and appreciate" the United player more than Solskjaer, according to the claims.

Van de Beek moved further forward when Nemanja Matic replaced Fernandes in the second half and played a key role in Daniel James' injury-time goal.

'He's the one player that will make other players play well'. "I think he'll be willing to try and do that (defensive side), but it won't be the defensive quality he'll bring, it'll be the link-up play between the forward players which is important".

Hopefully Van de Beek has done enough to force his way into the starting XI and his versatility should really help him in this regard.

Dyson to invest £2.75bn in new technologies
The billionaire entrepreneur said his plans were not commercially viable, but he has refused to rule out another attempt at his dream.

Although the summer signing didn't get on the score-sheet or create a goal, former Manchester United defender Ferdinand was impressed with Van de Beek's contribution.

Derksen also stated: "I think Gravenberch is definitely the greatest talent we have in the Netherlands". Some games I play number 10, sometimes the coach needs me in the control position, that's fine for me.

"It's getting the ball there quick, rather than late, so teams can't adjust in time". When you spend £40m on a player, you want to see him make more than just little cameos here and there.

"Obviously we've been impatient with that but Ole's had a reason for that and today he justified why he's been brought to the club and why he's thought of so highly in European football".

"If you keep constantly changing teams with two midfielders and two sitting players, you don't really get the flow of players playing with each other and that might be one of the problems".

The World Cup victor has missed United's last two games with an ankle problem that reportedly caused him to be absent for large parts of last term.
