QPR vs Manchester United 0-2 Highlights
1' [0-1] Wayne Rooney
56' [0-2] Michael Carrick
This is a big test for Manchester United when the Red Devils travels to Loftus Road to compete in an English Premier League clash with Queens Park Rangers on Sunday, 18th December 2011 at 7:00 a.m. EST. Manchester United fans know that they will go to the top of the Premier League at the expense of rivals City if their players win a victory against QPR. Most importantly, Queens Park Rangers have been surprisingly competitive in their first season back in the top level of English football. In the 11 last meetings of two teams, Man Utd have won eight and lost none to QPR.
Manchester United have lost just one of their last 18 Premier League matches and won the last six clashes in the EPL this season. The champions have scored exactly one goal in each of their last five Premier League away games and four goals in the latest victory over Wolves last weekend. By scoring 12 goals and conceding 3, MU has the best away defense in the League so far and owns 36 points. The points tally of 36 would have been enough to danger the noisy neighbours City who are two points ahead despite battling a seemingly never-ending slew of injuries. Manchester United travels to QPR this weekend boasting unbeaten away form with hope to move to the top of the table.

Meanwhile, QPR drops 13th in the Premier League table and 4 points better off than Wigan in 18th after losing 1-0 at Anfield last week. QPR have won only one and lost four of their last six Premier League matches; notably, this was a win over Chelsea and a close 2-3 loss to Manchester City. QPR players are confident to spring a surprise to this weekend game.
More importantly, Wayne Rooney has ended his eight-week Premier League goal drought and be one of the first-team strikers with Danny Welbeck on the clash
QPR Shaun Wright-Phillips proudly said before the match, “It’s a massive game to play in and we are looking forward to it and hopefully we can do the same thing we did to Chelsea and move further up the table again”. He added, “We beat Chelsea, now let's beat the champions”
The 25-year-old Portuguese winger Nani is Sir Alex Ferguson's first attack for Manchester United at the moment. He has tallied five goals and five assists during the EPL season, including two goals and an assist in Manchester United's 4-1 win against Wolves at Old Trafford last Saturday
