Memphis replaced Jesse Lingard after 86 minutes played at Stamford Bridge with the score at 1-0 and he was given the task of running the clock down for Man United.
However, his sloppy pass in the Chelsea half late on was punished by the hosts as they went up the other end of the pitch and scored through Diego Costa. United supporters were disappointed with Memphis following the clash:
We tried to defend a lead with 20mins left. Too far out. By the way do not bring on Memphis if you are trying to defend a lead. Lazy!

Memphis had had plenty of chances to express himself and to prove his the right man for the job. Fucking shit he is??

If Memphis had have played the simple pass when we were 4 on 2 counter then we could've sealed the 3 points, instead he gave it away!

Memphis is so frustrating, has the ability but needs to work hard to get back in the team and back in form

Memphis didn't track back can't put the blame on Jackson but no one tackled him can't even defend

Patience is wearing thin with Memphis. He was brought to the club in the summer with a reputation as one of the best young players in the world but he has struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford this term.
There is clearly a talented player in the Dutchman but he hasn’t seemed to have found the winning formula.
Next season will be a crucial one for him; if he doesn’t produce, question marks will be raised over his future at United.
