The Dutchman expertly steered him the cross with a first-time left foot volley and given how much pressure was on him to perform up front with Martial and Rooney out injured, it was a very composed finish.
It’s really not gone to plan so far for Memphis in the Premier League but the goal will fill him with confidence and that can only be a good thing for United.

United youngster Timothy-Fosu Mensah was also happy to see his compatriot get on the score sheet.

Memphis came to United with so much promise after a storming season in the Eredivisie but he has so far struggled to adapt to English football. However, it’s only November and it would be far too harsh to judge him already.
Moving forward into the busy festive period, United fans will be hoping that this is a turning point for Memphis and he can show us the sort of form which made him one of the most sought after young players in Europe.
