Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has admitted that his side found it difficult to cope as they lost 4-0 to a rejuvenated Manchester United on Sunday, Goal.com
Redknapp lined his team up defensively against a home side which included Angel Di Maria, Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Robin van Persie. They managed to deal with the early threat, but conceded an opening goal on 24 minutes when Di Maria’s free-kick curled all the way in.
The visitors were then out of the game by half-time as Ander Herrera and Rooney grabbed further goals, both from just outside the penalty area. The fourth came just before the hour mark as Mata controlled Di Maria’s wayward shot and fired high into the net past Robert Green.
After seeing his players create little all afternoon, Redknapp said: “A few minutes before half-time we were 1-0 down and still bang in the game.To come in at 3-0 down, when our keeper has not had a shot to save… If you have ever played in a team 3-0 down at half-time it is very difficult. You have to make sure you don’t get beat by six or seven. [It was] a difficult day, I expected it and we got one.”
