Premier League: Man United 2-0 QPR

[Monday, April 09, 2012 ]

Manchester United comfortably beat Queens Park Rangers 2-0 at Old Trafford to tighten their grip at the top of the Premier League, but the game was not without controversy.

Wayne Rooney, who was fortunate to escape punishment for an earlier rash challenge on Samba Diakité, opened the scoring from the penalty spot after Shaun Derry was harshly sent off for an apparent tug on Ashley Young in the box.

Contact was minimal to start with, that Young was clearly offside when he received Rooney's through ball just made the call from referee Lee Mason even more farcical.

Paul Scholes then put the game beyond doubt on 68 minutes by rifling home from 25 yards after Adel Taarabt had gifted possession.
