The Dutchman sometimes went missing during the game and he spurned a golden opportunity to seal the three points late on.
However, it was good to see Memphis getting in those positions in the first place.
It was a mixed night for him and he received praise and criticism from Man United fans in equal measure:

Memphis Depay so far in his EPL career has been average.

Memphis Depay could have easily gotten a hattrick tonight

Of course, it is still very early days in Memphis’ United career.
Expectations have gone through the roof for the youngster following his goalscoring exploits at PSV Eindhoven last season but he will need time at Old Trafford. Once settled in, the goals will come naturally.
