Jason McAteer slams Memphis Depay for costing Manchester United win v Chelsea

Memphis Depay - Netherlands

Memphis Depay gave the ball away in the lead up to Chelsea's equaliser against Manchester United.

Memphis Depay is an exciting talent with a bright future ahead of him - but remains a player with a lot to learn.

The 21-year-old gave the ball away in the 90th minute of United's clash against Chelsea, attempting to square a simple pass to Morgan Schneiderlin, when he also could have ran the ball into the corner instead.

United were 1-0 up at the time, attempting to see out a hard fought victory at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea seized the initiative on getting the ball back, with Diego Costa going onto score a vital equaliser for the Blues.

Depay, on as a second half substitute, was roundly criticised for his error. One to blast him was former Liverpool footballer Jason McAteer.

Depay has already lost his place in United's starting XI, trusted only for a late few minutes against Chelsea in such a big game.

His costly error could mean the Louis van Gaal gives his star summer signing even less chances moving forward.
