"Following today's victory Manchester United have shortened to 9.617/2 third favourites to win the Premier League title, behind Chelsea, 1.855/6, and Man City 4.67/2, while LVG's men can be backed at 1.654/6 in the Top 4 Finish market."
Mancheser United recorded their first win of the season thanks to a resounding 4-0 victory over QPR at Old Trafford this afternoon.
Lous van Gaal's new-look side - dubbed the Gaal-acticos - took their time to hit top stride however and required a 'fortuitous' Angel Di Maria goal to take the lead midway through the first half.
The British record signing swung in a well-delivered free-kick from the right-hand side of the pitch, only for the ball to elude everyone in the box and find its way into the corner of the net. Di Maria was matched at 11.010/1 in the First Goalscorer market.
It wasn't long before United had their second thanks to a wonderful run from Di Maria that ended with Rooney laying on a pass for Ander Herrera to smash the ball home into the bottom corner.
And just before the interval it was Rooney himself who gave United an unassailable lead following some slack marking by the QPR defence, the Red Devils' captain firing home from the edge of the box.
The Any Unquoted Half Time score - any side to score at least three - was matched at a high of 34.033/1 In-Play.
With the game all but over the second half was played in a less sedate fashion though it did see the introduction of prolific striker Radamel Falcao, though not before the home side had made it 4-0 after Di Maria's scuffed shot found Juan Mata free in the area to fire home with ease.
A United victory was matched at just 1.321/3 in the Match Odds market, while the 4-0 Correct Score touched a high of 18.017/1.
