What a beautiful Sunday. United did the job and beat QPR 2-0 at Old Trafford putting themselves 8 points clear of City before their kick off with Arsenal. City lost. 8 points 6 games to go. Come on!
United played sensibly after QPR were reduced to 10 men after half hour and dominated the game, it was all that was required and another 4 like that will see us home.
There was lots to enjoy, here is a little selection
1. Tony Valencia ‘Megs’
Lovely knock from Scholes to Valencia, who faced up his defender before passing the ball through his legs to Welbeck. Cheeky.
2. Ashley Young touch
With Dimitar Berbatov nowhere to be seen, Ashley Young took it upon himself to produce a sexy piece of control.
3. Young backheel, Welbeck chance
Ashley Young again showing a lovely touch as his beautiful backheel gave Welbeck a shooting chance which he failed to hit the target with.
4. Paul Scholes he scores goals
Goal with REPLAYS
What can I say? The man is a genius. My hero. My favourite ever United player and its been amazing to see him play for United again after his comeback. Scholes was MOTM and instrumental to everything we did. His goal was typical Scholes, as was his pass map entry to the ‘100 Pass Club’
5. Passing move ft. Jonny Evans
Not only as Evans been solid at the back but as his confidence has grown, his ability to come forward with the ball has started to shine. Here is moves forward with the ball, and after a few neat 1 touch passes plays in Welbeck who has his cross blocked.
