Was rarely tested yet when called upon to produce a save was never found lacking.
Should have scored when his header came back off the crossbar but otherwise kept the physical presence of QPR’s two front men in check.
It looks as if the partnership forged with Jonny Evans will be crucial to United’s next few months and, though it was barely tested today, a clean sheet will be most welcome.
Flop of the Match
A perplexing display that gives weight to the suggestion that the fullback isn’t operating at his highest level. Was beaten far too often by Mackie and looked uncomfortable throughout.
Would have liked to have seen him attack a bit more given the manner in which QPR were wholly on the back foot yet a sturdy display nonetheless.
Lung bursting runs through the middle made his side look constantly menacing on the counter.
Was content to control things from deep, with Jones putting in the leg work in the first half, yet strode through himself in the second to put the game beyond doubt.
Teased and threatened without ever really producing too much.
Great cross for Rooney’s opener but then faded in influence as the game wore on.
Top of the Match
Precise header gave his team the early lead and from there they never looked back. Clever movement made him a nightmare to defend and was the clear pivot from which all United attacking endeavors sprung from.
Several chances in the first half meant he should have got his name on the scoresheet. Looked sharp up top with Rooney.
Late introduction to save a legs. Enjoyed his team’s lengthy spells of possession.
Bit of sharp footwork and perhaps should have scored when he fired straight at Cerny.
Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez
Clearly working his way back to fitness. Cameo will have done him good, but didn’t bring too much to the party.
