|Ryan Giggs 80’|
Manchester United were able to capitalize on Adel Taarabt giving the ball away to Ryan Giggs for their first goal. This lead to Robin van Persie’s shot being parried to Rafael who hit the ball on the volley for a cracking first goal. The unfortunate thing is that van Persie then crashed into a camera man and had to be subbed off before half time.
QPR put up a good fight and had some chances in the match, but Ryan Giggs put the game away in the 80th minute when he was played onside by the Rangers defense. What followed was pure class as he took his time to place his shot past Julio Cesar then turn to celebrate.
Manchester United are now 15 points clear at the top with Manchester City facing Chelsea tomorrow. QPR remain bottom of the table with only 17 points and look destined for relegation.
