Manchester United overcame Queens Park Rangers with ease on Sunday, and here are a selection of images from the game.
They said this was the match when the new Manchester United would reveal themselves – the United who had a £150million summer overhaul under the guidance of new manager Louis van Gaal.
And so it proved, with Old Trafford witnessing a 4-0 victory against a Queens Park Rangers side who never looked like causing an upset.
Goals from Angel Di Maria, Ander Herrera, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata ensured van Gaal got his first competitive victory in charge of the club, while giving the Theatre of Dreams something to cheer once more.
There is a very long way to go, and the Dutchman hinted as such when he said he wanted United to win the title inside three seasons.
But with Di Maria, Herrera and debutant Daley Blind all shining on Sunday, the signs are much better than they were on the opening weekend when a very different United slipped to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Swansea City.
Here are some of the best images from United’s emphatic win:
