FT: QPR 4-2 MAN UTD
Queens Park Rangers thrashed Manchester United in a thrilling friendly encounter at Loftus Road.
United opened the scoring after just three minutes when Mason Greenwood gained possession deep in midfield and found Facundo Pellistri with a wonderful through ball.
Pellistri then switched with Jesse Lingard, who broke inside the box and beat Seny Dieng with ease.
But the Red Devils’ celebrations were cut short just four minutes later when QPR captain Lee Wallace’s crisp cross from the left wing found Charlie Austin unmarked and forgotten by Teden Mengi inside the box.
Austin got the header and gave Tom Heaton absolutely no chance to react.
Things got so much better for the Rs in the second half as they scored three goals in less than eight minutes.
It all started when Chris Willock’s shot got deflected to the far post where captain Wallace kept the ball in play and cut it back to Dykes, who found the back of the net on 52 minutes.
Then Moses Odubajo beat Lee Grant with an absolute screamer just five minutes later.
And Dykes completed a brace with a beautiful left-footed effort.
United hit back in the 73rd minute with Anthony Elanga’s clinical shot following an assist by Shola Shoretire
