So much for a leisurely walk in the park in Manchester United's Champions League play-off with Club Brugge.

The Belgian side took a lead inside of 10 minutes when Michael Carrick's attempt to deal with a free-kick was redirected past Sergio Romero.

The "crisis" was short-lived, though, as Memphis Depay quickly equalised with his first competitive goal for the club, and what an effort it was!

Depay scored his second late in the second half, and again, it was very well taken.

The Dutchman was hailed as he "officially" arrived at Manchester United.

Depay should have had a hat-trick, but skied his effort over the bar after Wayne Rooney set him up beautifully with a cheeky backheel flick. 

Luke Shaw sparked the move with a darting run on the counter-attack.

Marouane Fellaini closed out the scoring on the night with a late goal to give the Red Devils a commanding advantage heading into the second leg in Belgium.
