Solskjaer pleased with Henderson, Van de Beek for Man Utd defeat

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was happy with Dean Henderson and Donny van de Beek for their friendly defeat to Aston Villa.

It marks the only preseason game for United this summer.

Solskjaer said after the 1-0 reverse: “There were some positives as well, some good positives like individual performances - I thought Deano showed his authority back there and he played like a proper Man United goalkeeper. And especially in the second half, you saw Teden when he came on, how exciting a prospect he is.

“Donny was maybe the biggest plus in the outfield. He's such a finder of space and he creates time for himself with his timing and movement. I was very happy with his performance."
