Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney refuses to blame Memphis Depay

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney refuses to blame Memphis Depay after his pass led to Chelsea's equaliser on Sunday.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has refused to place blame on Memphis Depay after his pass led to Chelsea's equaliser at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Dutchman came on as a substitute in the 87th minute with the Red Devils leading 1-0 thanks to Jesse Lingard's second-half strike.

It was a cameo to forget for the winger as he gave the ball away and Diego Costa went on to seal a point for Chelsea in stoppage time.

"I think we're all disappointed," the Manchester Evening News quotes Rooney as saying. "Memphis is a fantastic player and that happens, we all give bad passes away.

"A lot of things happened from when you give the ball away to when they've scored the goal, so I don't think we can stand here and blame Memphis. I think there were other things which happened and why they've scored."

Depay joined United from PSV Eindhoven last summer for a reported £25m fee.
