Manchester United fans react on Twitter to Morgan Schneiderlin's stunning debut

The former Southampton midfielder has made an instant impact at Manchester United.

Southampton fans knew what they were going to be missing when Morgan Schneiderlin signed for Manchester United earlier this summer.

At Old Trafford, however, the Frenchman's arrival may have received a little less attention due to the simultaneous signings of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Matteo Darmian. Schweinsteiger, in particular, is a World Cup and Champions League winner who will be competing with Schneiderlin for a spot in United's midfield.

But the former Southampton man was unfazed as he began life in a Manchester United shirt, scoring the winner on his debut and generally impressing during his side's friendly victory over Club America.

As ever, this was only a pre-season game but the 25-year-old showed flashes of what he is capable of - and many United fans were impressed enough to predict a big campaign ahead for the Frenchman.

At Southampton, Schneiderlin bossed midfields all over the Premier League. And, at Manchester United, more of the same might even be enough to keep the likes of Schweinsteiger out of Louis van Gaal's side. Here's what supporters made of his debut on Twitter...
