Queens Park Rangers 0-2 Manchester United: Second-half United double settles close affair

Marouane Fellaini and James Wilson both got on the scoresheet in the second-half, as Manchester United finally earned an away win against a struggling Queens Park Rangers side, reports BBC Sport.

Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal was subject to boos from some angry supporters after a goalless and disappointing first-half showing, but things went United’s way after the break.

Van Gaal brought on midfielder Marouane Fellaini at half-time, and the physical Belgian vindicated the decision before the hour mark, scoring following a good passage of play.

Queens Park Rangers came close to a leveller following a mix-up at the back that saw Eduardo Vargas with the chance to play Charlie Austin through on goal, but he was crowded out before making a pass and the attack broke down.

James Wilson doubled United’s lead and made sure of the points late on in the game, which left Rangers back in the drop zone, and United in the top-four.
