Gallery: Reds pull clear
Goals from Rafael and Ryan Giggs sealed a hard-fought win for Manchester United at Loftus Road on Saturday and sent the Reds 15 points clear at the top of the Barclays Premier League.
A scrappy first half was lit up by an absolute screamer from Rafael who sent a rising effort into the top corner from 20 yards on 23 minutes.
Giggs made sure of the three points 10 minutes from full-time with a composed finish after being put through by Nani.
The only downside to the day was a hip injury to Robin van Persie who was forced off just before half-time after colliding with a TV camera in the build-up to the first goal.
