Memphis Depay has had more than his fair share of critics this season but over the last week his form has taken a dramatic upturn.
Against Arsenal at the weekend, he was once again in confident form and gave Arsenal’s defence a headache all night long. You can see how much more confident he is as a player and we’re starting to see what he can do when he’s mentally in the right place.
One particular piece of controlled skill was amazing from Memphis when he took the ball down with an exquisite touch. Here’s a video:
If Neymar had done this everyone would be wanking over it but its Depay so nvm

And it wasn’t just during the game either that Memphis was showing off his skills either as he did the same thing in the warm-up:

Memphis really got fans excited against Arsenal and they’re the sort of players who thrive at Old Trafford – those who live on the edge of frustration and brilliance but continue to work hard in order for frustration to be eliminated altogether.
It’s been a tough few months for the young Dutchman but if his form this week is anything to go by, Memphis is starting to show us all what he’s really capable of on a consistent basis.
