Memphis Depay walked out inside Old Trafford into a cacophony of noise to make his full Manchester United debut in a competitive fixture and showed plenty of positive signs.
The 21-year-old never once looked nervous or out of place in his 70 minute performance in what was one of the biggest games of his career to date.
Playing in the No.10 role where Louis van Gaal used him during the pre-season, Memphis showed great vision at points to pick out his team-mates where most expected him to pass and although he didn’t score, he can be happy with how he played.
Memphis will have to wait a little while longer for his first competitive goal for United but on what was a charged day on the opening day of the season.
