Casey Stoney criticises Donny van de Beek after mistake in West Ham defeat

Former Manchester United Women manager Casey Stoney has criticised Donny van de Beek’s role in the goal that led to the defeat to West Ham United in the Carabao Cup.

Van de Beek was handed a rare start in midfield for the second clash with the Hammers in three days as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made 11 changes to the side that won 2-1 in east London on Sunday.

The only goal of the game came after nine minutes with Manuel Lanzini slotting home after neat play from Ryan Fredericks who jinked past Alex Telles.

The Argentine was unmarked in the six-yard area to score with Stoney highlighting the Dutchman’s positional error at half-time.

‘He’s got drawn to the ball, he’s had his eyes on the ball and he’s not checked his shoulder,’ Stoney told Sky Sports.

‘There is only one ball being played from the byline and that is the cutback.

‘That is the danger.

‘You have got to stay on your player and make sure you are in a position to defend it.’

United resume their Premier League campaign at home to Aston Villa on Saturday.
