Donny Van De Beek's Personal Highlights Vs Leeds Show How Good He Was

Donny Van De Beek's Personal Highlights Vs Leeds Show How Good He Was

After months of sitting on Manchester United's bench, Van de Beek made his first start for Everton on Saturday and was brilliant throughout.

Donny van de Beek made his first Premier League start for Everton on Saturday against Leeds United, and his personal highlights video shows it was a very successful one for him.

Van de Beek has not had a good time in English football to date, since moving from Amsterdam to Manchester in August 2020 to go to Manchester United.

The former Ajax midfielder started just four Premier League games in his first season and this season started no games in the league, for either Ole Gunnar Solskjaer or Ralf Rangnick.

Van de Beek moved to Everton on loan in the January transfer window, with former United star Jaap Stam slamming the club for playing him out of position.

In his first start for Frank Lampard's team on Saturday, the 24-year-old played in a midfield pair, alongside Allan, and had a brilliant performance in the Toffees' 3-0 win over Leeds, and his highlights video is proof of how well he played.

It was the first time that the former Ajax man had played 90 minutes in the Premier League, having been subbed off in all his starts for United, and he picked up the man of the match award.

In the first half alone he topped the standings for the most passes, tackles, touches and aerial duels, as Everton recovered from their midweek loss to Newcastle United.

Van de Beek also played an instrumental part in the opening goal, with his cross towards Dominic Calvert-Lewin being directed towards Seamus Coleman by Leeds midfielder Mateusz Klich, with the Irishman heading home.

The Dutch midfielder, who has recently missed out on national team squads in the lead up to this winter's World Cup, certainly impressed fans with his display, especially those who support Manchester United.

Whilst Van de Beek, and Everton, were thriving on Saturday, it was a very different proposition for his parent club, as they once again threw away a lead.

Having gone 1-0 up against Southampton, Ralf Rangnick's team drew 1-1, with the exact same thing happening against Middlesborough in the FA Cup and Burnley in the league.
