Stats Reveal How Bad Memphis Has Been For Manchester United

Stats Reveal How Bad Memphis Has Been For Manchester United

What on Earth has happened to Memphis Depay?

The Dutch winger was supposed to be the catalyst for Manchester United's challenge for the Premier League title this season, following his big-money move from PSV last summer.

But the exciting prospect that took the Eredivise by storm last season basically hasn't shown up for the Red Devils in this campaign, with a measly seven goals in all competitions his total return so far.

And things just go from bad to worse for Depay, with new statistics suggesting that he is the worst overall forward in the Premier League this season.
