Man Utd Ease To Victory At QPR
Ryan Giggs scored on his 999th senior appearance for club and country to help lift Manchester United 15 points above Manchester City with victory over QPR.
The Welshman secured the win following Rafael's first-half strike when the Brazilian smashed home from 20 yards.
Rafael also showed his worth in defence when he cleared Chris Samba's header off the line.
QPR improved after the break but Giggs timed his run to tuck in with 10 minutes left and later hit the bar.
Following Loic Remy's stinging shot, saved by David De Gea, Giggs's decisive intervention settled the contest just as it looked like United might suffer a nervous finish.
In the end, they ran out comfortable winners with Danny Welbeck and Wayne Rooney wasteful late on, and the defeat leaves QPR rooted to the bottom of the Premier League, seven points from safety.
