Manchester United striker scores five as Memphis Depay inspires team

SPORTS By Mirror | February 9th 2016

Manchester United's Under-21s ran riot at Old Trafford on Monday night with striker Will Keane scoring five times in a 7-0 victory over Norwich.

The striker did the bulk of the damage in a match which saw Adnan Januzaj limp off during the first half with a suspected hamstring injury and saw Dutch international Memphis Depay impress.

Keane, who has recalled from his loan spell from Preston earlier this season, opened his account from six yards after good work from Andreas Pereira.

Struggling first-team player Depay set him up for his next before half time, finding Keane at the back post to tap into an empty net.

The hat-trick was complete just two minutes after the break, with Depay the provider once more.

Pereira added a penalty shortly afterwards, before Keane scored his fourth, and most certainly best, goal of the night just after the hour mark.

Smart footwork on the edge of the area got him into the box before he served up a delicious chip over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah made it six, before Keane crowned his display by slotting home from a James Weir pass.

Januzaj's injury was a blot on the evening for United, as was Guillermo Varela also sustaining a problem in front of the watching Louis van Gaal and Ryan Giggs.

Belgium international Januzaj has only just returned from an unsuccessful loan spell at Borussia Dortmund but has yet to make an impact back at United.

He and Varela join Luke Shaw, Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young and Bastian Schweinsteiger on United's list of enforced absentees.

Phil Jones, who has only just returned from an injury lay-off, also came off just before the hour, but his withdrawal was pre-planned, as he works his way back to full fitness.
