Angel Di Maria has expressed his delight after a "great start" to his Manchester United career following his side's 4-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers.

The Argentine international made his Old Trafford debut while his compatriot Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind and Radamel Falcao made their United debut on Sunday. The 26-year-old was signed for a British record transfer fee of £59.7m from Real Madrid last month.

Di Maria opened the scoring and got an assist to his name against QPR. His performance saw him being named the Man of the Match. The player is keen on keeping United fans happy by scoring regularly for Louis van Gaal's side.

"I have made a great start and I think people are happy with me. I hope I can go on to score many more goals so that people remain happy with me," Di Maria told Fox Sports.

"I was really looking forward to the arrival of this special day. You can always dream or imagine that you are going to score a goal but it is not always easy. To get a goal and an assist brings me immense happiness."

"Van Gaal at the end of the day is what every coach is like. He demands a high intensity from his players and wants us to press high up the pitch and score goals."

"I like his style and we proved that we can perform what he wants us to do. He wants us to keep the ball and pass and move it around. To keep possession throughout the game and all over the pitch," the former Real star concluded.

Meanwhile, another summer signing Ander Herrera has heaped praise on Di Maria for his brilliant display against QPR. The Spaniard also scored his first goal for United in their last league fixture and believes Van Gaal's side still has room for improvement.

"Angel is one of the best players in the world. Manchester United always has to have top players and he is one of the best," Herrera explained.

"We have Radamel Falcao as well, with Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw. I think we have a new team but we are improving, we are working hard and we are looking forward to this season."
