Blind never looked out of place on his Premier League debut and impressively provided a shield in front of the Manchester United defence which was barely troubled by QPR.

Fellow Dutchman Robin van Persie started up front but he was not on the score-sheet despite United running out easy 4-0 winners thanks to goals from Angel di Maria, Ander Herrera, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata.

The win was Louis van Gaal’s first competitive victory since he took charge of the club in the summer, and the former Netherlands boss will have been impressed from what he saw from Blind on his debut.
