Gallery: Reds pull clear

Goals from Rafael and Ryan Giggs sealed a hard-fought win for Manchester United at Loftus Road on Saturday and sent the Reds 15 points clear at the top of the Barclays Premier League.

A scrappy first half was lit up by an absolute screamer from Rafael who sent a rising effort into the top corner from 20 yards on 23 minutes.

Giggs made sure of the three points 10 minutes from full-time with a composed finish after being put through by Nani.

The only downside to the day was a hip injury to Robin van Persie who was forced off just before half-time after colliding with a TV camera in the build-up to the first goal.

Club photographers John and Matt Peters and fellow snappers from Getty Images were on hand to capture some of the best moments from the match and you can view a selection of images by clicking on the main photo above.
