Three things we learned from Man United v QPR

Manchester United beat Queens Park Rangers 2-0 at Loftus Road but were far from convincing. Here are THREE things we learned from today’s game:

Van Gaal getting an easy ride

Yes, Manchester United won but it was again far from convincing. Van Gaal’s reputation makes people slower to question the Dutchman but his record on the field is not much better than David Moyes. While the criticism of the latter was certainly over the top, the former is definitely ‘getting away with it’ to some extent.

Di Maria needs to start deeper

The Argentine has been deployed as a striker since his return from injury with little success. Di Maria did well up front in the game against Arsenal earlier in the season but has failed to replicate this performance in any of his outings since. Time to move the former Real Madrid man back to familiar territory.

Falcao a shadow of former self

Fellaini’s goal meant the Belgian has now scored the same amount of league goals as Falcao, and while this would have been unthinkable in August, it is not at all surprising now. The Columbian is far from the player of his Atleico days and it’s becoming increasingly unlikely that he will be retained in Manchester.
