Erik Ten Hag believes Donny Van De Beek chance will come at Manchester United as the Dutch midfielder has struggled in the Premier League.

Manchester United midfielder Donny Van De Beek has been going through tough time at the club since he moved to the club.

Van De Beek was signed by former manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer last two season but didn’t get much playing time.

The former Ajax player was loaned to Everton last season but still didn’t feature much due to injury.

The Dutch player, who impressed in the preseason is currently out due to injury but Ten Hag believes his time will come.

When asked about available player to face Everton on Sunday Ten Hag said: “Difficult to say. Varane has made progress and I hope he’s available but I think it will be close. From the other players, Harry Maguire is not [available] and then it’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Donny van de Beek, both not.”

Speaking about Van De Beek’s injury the former Ajax manager said: “He had a muscle injury and so it takes him a couple of weeks. He’s now back on the training grass so he’s outside doing his work but still individually. He’s not returned to team training so we have to wait for that moment.”

When asked if Van De Beek can have impact in Manchester United, the Red Devils manager said: “He has to be fit. Obviously, that is a disadvantage. He has now been here for two-and-a-half years. He had pre-season, that was quite okay, then his chances will come.

“When he came on against Brighton, he came on as a sub and did very well but you have to be available and when you are not available you cannot get a place in the first XI. Now he has to make sure he gets fit and fights for his position.”
