A quick-fire three-goal salvo gave Manchester United a 3-1 win over Harry Redknapp's new club Queens Park Rangers on Saturday that took them to the top of the EPL table.

Incoming QPR manager Redknapp was present at Old Trafford, hours after his appointment as the successor to Mark Hughes was confirmed, and he saw his new charges take a shock lead in the 52nd minute.

Kieron Dyer’s cross-shot from the left was palmed out by Anders Lindegaard and Jamie Mackie found the roof of the net from close range. But three goals in eight minutes saw United roar into the lead.

Jonny Evans headed in the equaliser from close range (64th minute) and four minutes later, Darren Fletcher scoring with a header from Wayne Rooney’s corner. Substitute Javier Hernandez then beat QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar from Anderson’s pass in the 72nd minute.
