Man Utd score first win of the season
There is no doubt that there will be tougher challenges ahead. However, as an exercise in efficiently dismantling what was put before them, in this case a struggling QPR, make no mistake, Manchester United were clinical.
Energised by the international break and galvanised by some huge, and very expensive, signings, this was a Man Utd team that showed great potential in a 4-0 win which will bring much relief to Van Gaal. The performance of Di Maria in particular will also bring hope to the many fans who have found themselves in unfamiliar territory supporting a mid table side struggling for form and consistency.
