Manchester Utd bounce back with victory over QPR
« on: January 18, 2015, 03:18:03 PM »

Manchester United bounced back from their loss against Southampton by defeating Queens Park Rangers 2-0. Marouane Fellaini and James Wilson came off the substitutes? bench to earn Manchester United a 2-0 victory at struggling QPR in the Premier League on Saturday.
Both sides? managers went into the game under the spotlight, but it was United?s Louis van Gaal who prevailed at the expense of QPR?s under-pressure Harry Redknapp thanks to the impact of his two substitutes.

The pair spared the blushes of Radamel Falcao, who returned to the starting XI but squandered two gilt-edged chances, and allowed United to consolidate their position in the top four.
Redknapp had accused a Loftus Road insider of undermining him in the build-up to the game and his mood will not have been improved by the sight of the firepower on the United team-sheet.
Robin van Persie was absent after injuring his ankle in United?s 1-0 loss at home to Southampton last weekend, but the Dutchman?s misfortune opened the door for Falcao.
Van Gaal has challenged the on-loan Monaco striker to prove himself worthy of a long-term contract and it was the Colombia international who had the first chance of an error-prone first half in west London.
Juan Mata?s cross picked Falcao out in the 13th minute, but both of the striker?s close-range efforts were met by reflex saves from goalkeeper Rob Green.
QPR have been indebted to Charlie Austin for keeping them in touch with the teams above the relegation zone and their top scorer almost gave them the lead mid-way through the first period.
Bobby Zamora?s pass fell kindly for the former Burnley striker, who was watched by England manager Roy Hodgson, but David de Gea was equal to his effort.
