Manchester United 2 – QPR 0 (Premier League, April 8, 2012) (Alternative highlights, MOTD highlights) QPR’s match nosedived on the quarter hour when Shaun Derry (harshly?) saw red for a push on Ashley Young in the box, and Wayne Rooney stepped up to score from the spot. The Red Devils tried to doubled their tally after the break but Danny Welbeck had a goal ruled out for offside, while Rafael blew a point-blank effort when he fired straight at Kenny. In the 68th minute the second goal finally arrived as Paul Scholes drilled a shot into the bottom corner from the outside of the area. Michael Carrick came within a whisker of adding a third with a blistering strike that crashed against the apex of QPR’s post and bar.
