(Video) Manchester United 4-0 QPR: Angel Di Maria Puts In Man of the Match Display as Louis Van Gaal Picks Up First Win

Old Trafford side pick wonderful first Premier League win of the season.

Check in to Leicester City vs Manchester United

Man United collected their first win of the Premier League season with Louis van Gaal opting for a tactical re-think that certainly paid off against a QPR side that may struggle to stay up this term.

Angel Di Maria put in a man of the match display and debutants Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind showed themselves to be more than capable additions to the more defensive side to van Gaal’s starting eleven.

It was the Argentine winger who put Man United ahead with his superbly flighted free-kick evading everyone and sneaking in past Robert Green.

Not long later Old Trafford keeper David de Gea went on a walkabout that almost back-fired, thankfully Jonny Evans backed up the Spaniard with a diving clearance from Niko Kranjcar’s effort.

Ander Herrera calmed the home side’s nerves with a drilled second.

Rooney goal video here

And Wayne Rooney fired in from just inside the box to give Man United a three goal cushion going into the break.

Juan Mata appeared to be back on form in his new position at the tip of a diamond formation behind the front two and the Spanish international fired home after being found by a superb di Maria pass.

Who would bet against Man United driving on from this victory? Is a top four place still in their grasp or perhaps with no European entanglements a Premier League title challenge isn’t impossible?
