Redknapp thinks his side deserved all three points at Loftus Road.

Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp was full of praise for his side despite their 2-0 defeat to Manchester United, according to the club's official website.

Second-half goals from Marouane Fellaini and youngster James Wilson saw the R's falls to their third defeat in a row in all competitions.

However, despite the loss, Redknapp thought his side's performance was credible and worthy of all three points at Loftus Road.

“That was possibly as good as we’ve played at home all year,” said Redknapp.

“At 1-0 down we were pushing everyone forward. We got in to some great positions at the end but couldn’t quite find that killer final ball.”

The lack of killer instinct will be a killer blow to Redknapp, with a failure to convert their chances leaving QPR 19th in the Premier League table, just a point away from 17th-placed Burnley with Hull yet to play.

The performance from his QPR players will provide the veteran manager with hope, though, as he looks to guide his side to Premier League safety at the first time of asking. Such was the level of performance from his players, he felt the final 2-0 scoreline was an injustice against the R's.

“We were looking for the goal and it was always a possibility that they’d break away and score – but the 2-0 final scoreline was an injustice,” he said.

“I couldn’t be more pleased with the effort and commitment of the players – they were fantastic.”

One player who came in for particular praise was goalkeeper Rob Green, who had a busy afternoon at Loftus Road.

“Rob is playing some of the best football of his career – he’s been outstanding for us this season,” added Redknapp.
