Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims Donny van de Beek will soon “reap his rewards” at Manchester United.

Van de Beek joined from Ajax for a reported £40million last season, but chances have been sparse for the 24-year-old at Old Trafford.

The midfielder has started just four games for United in the Premier League, his last coming against Wolves in May, while appearing just 21 times in the top-flight for his 528 minutes.

United supporters greeted Van de Beek’s introduction off the bench against Manchester City two weeks ago with rapturous applause, highlighting the faith they have in the Netherlands international.

Solskjaer joined in with the praise for Van de Beek as the Norwegian pinpointed his work ethic ahead of Saturday’s clash with Watford.

“I think our fans can see a top professional and a very good player,” Solskjaer said. “And Donny is one that has never ever let himself or his team or his family down by his attitude.

“His approach to the game and training is spot on. I can’t fault him, and he knows that.

“I keep in contact and I speak to him and communicate with him because it’s not easy when players are not playing as much as they think they should do, and Donny thinks he should be playing more and he will be involved.

“I can’t say anything other than he’s another example of what to do when you’re not in the team and he’ll reap his rewards.”

Van de Beek was looking to feature at Vicarage Road as United attempted to bounce back from four losses in six league games, as many as they had in their previous 40 matches in the Premier League.

But the Red Devils were expected to be without Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani, who has a tendon injury.

“Unfortunately he felt something in one of the last sessions before City and he had to pull out of the game because he didn’t feel right. We’ve got to give him time to feel right,” Solskjaer added.

“I can’t give you a timescale if it’s tomorrow or Tuesday or Chelsea. We’ll see how he is, that’s important.”
