Man Utd and Wayne Rooney Within Striking Distance of the Top

Wayne Rooney, Manchester United

Queens Park Rangers 0-2 Manchester United

“We should have put the game to bed after about half an hour. It was a good team performance; we played some good football and will take a 2-0 win away from home. We have been a bit sparse in terms of goals scored recently but we won 4-1 last week and scored two today, some would say we should have scored more,” remarked Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson after the match.

“Good three points today at a hard place to play. Great support from our travelling fans again! Michael Carrick was top man today, under-rated by many,” said Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand.
