Memphis Depay took to social media to thank Manchester United’s fans for their “great” support after helping the Red Devils move to the top of the Premier League table with a 3-0 win over Sunderland on Saturday.

Summer signing Depay broke the deadlock at Old Trafford with his first goal in the English top flight just before half-time after good work from Juan Mata.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney then ended his Premier League goal drought with his first of the season after the break, before Mata added a third in stoppage time.

The win lifted United up to the top of the Premier League table and one point ahead of Manchester City after the Citizens’ loss at Tottenham.

And Depay was thrilled to play his part in helping Louis van Gaal’s men claim victory.

Manchester United travel to Arsenal in their next Premier League game next Sunday.
