Manchester United star lucky to have played three games on the bounce suggests journalist

Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek has started three times in a row for Erik ten Hag.

The Dutch midfielder has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester United since moving from Ajax and has struggled to adjust to the English game.

However, Ten Hag has shown faith in his compatriot of late, starting three games in a row.

Whether this is because he deserves the chance due to excellent work in training or a lack of options at the moment remains to be seen, but journalist Samuel Luckhurst certainly subscribes to the belief that Van de Beek has a bit of luck have played the last three games, as seen in the tweet below.

Two of the three games in which Van de Beek has started were in cup competitions. With Bruno Fernandes suspended against Aston Villa in the Premier League, Van de Beek had a rare opportunity to impress.

It will be interesting to see if Van de Beek keeps his place in the Premier League at the weekend, with Fernandes back and Manchester United likely fielding their strongest possible squad.
