Man United 2-0 QPR
Rooney (p) 15'
Man United edging to the 20th title quest. The game was all Man United however the penalty and Shaun Derry red card had killed the game early. QPR skipper was harshly sent off. Firstly Ashley Young was obviously offside when he received a pass from Rooney. The referee assistant should see it clearly. If that not disgrace enough the second talking point should be. It was very minimal contact between Young and Derry. It was no red card offence.
Rooney step up to convert the penalty.
It was hard done by for QPR. Against Man United at Old Trafford it was tall order for QPR to beat the home side. QPR through their talismanic playmaker Adel Taraabt tried to push forward but with one man down it clearly Man United had the upper hand.
However it was quite surprising that Man United needed more than 50 minutes from the first goal to score second. And it was Paul Scholes goal to secure the all three points.
