​Fernandes praises Man Utd teammate van de Beek after Burnley assist

Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes had praise for his teammate Donny van de Beek after his side's 3-1 win over Burnley.

United had to battle hard to secure all three points in the Premier League on Sunday.

Mason Greenwood scored twice, with Edinson Cavani netting the third.

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.
