United had to battle hard to secure all three points in the Premier League on Sunday.
Van de Beek notched his first league assist for the team, providing a neat pass to Cavani after he had been put through by Fernadnes on the counter attack.
Fernandes tweeted about van de Beek post-game, saying: "Donny boy!! @Donny_beek6. What a way to celebrate your birthday. Another 3 points! Let's keep making winning an habit #mufc"
Van de Beek will be happy with the performance he put in after coming on in the 84th minute, on what was his 24th birthday.
