Memphis Depay put in a fantastic performance in Manchester United’s 5-1 win over FC Midtjylland, and topped off his Man of the Match performance with a goal.

Louis van Gaal, who was the motivating factor behind the youngster signing for United, sung his praises.

I’m very happy for him. He needs this kind of match. He played fantastic. He can play fantastic, so maybe it’s a turning point for him, you never know. I hope that with all my heart, but we have to wait and see and Arsenal is another level.
