Twitter targets Memphis Depay after poor Manchester United display

Manchester United went into Tuesday's FA Cup tie against Shrewsbury Town knowing a defeat would probably signify the lowest moment in the club's recent history.

Having already lost to Danish minnows FC Midtjylland, losing to the struggling League One side would have surely been enough to see Louis van Gaal sacked.

As we write this, the Red Devils lead Shrewsbury 2-0 and look to have already sealed a safe passage into the quarter-finals where they will face West Ham at Old Trafford. Those two goals, however, came with little help from Memphis Depay.

In fact, despite a relatively positive first half for the Red Devils, Depay has been the target of Internet trolls for his pretty spectacular efforts at goal. And by spectacular, we mean terrible.

You can't blame the Netherlands international for trying but it seems there is little he can do right at the moment. Of course, his big personality, outlandish dress style and £250,000 Rolls Royce has certainly made him something of a target.

Having made a rare start to compensate for Wayne Rooney's absence, the £25m summer signing from PSV Eindhoven tried his best to impress. He failed.

That is perhaps why Twitter has given Depay no space to breathe following a relatively uninspiring first-half display. Take a look at some of the best reaction below:
