Marcos Rojo - Manchester United's best defender against QPR

Marcos Rojo playing for Argentina

Summer signing Marcos Rojo impressed for Manchester United against QPR.

Marcos Rojo stood out as Manchester United recorded a 2-0 away win against QPR.

United needed a win after a run of three league games without one, with goals from Marouane Fellaini and James Wilson doing the job.

They were aided by a solid defensive performance against a QPR side who have gained every one of their 19 points this season at their home stadium.

Summer signing Rojo was a rock at the back, outperforming his fellow defenders.

Rojo won four tackles, with Jones and Evans managing just one combined, and was the joint-leader in terms of interceptions made and aerial duels won.

The Argentine international was also the only Manchester United defender to block shots on goal (2). He also managed 89 touches of the ball, second only in the United side to Wayne Rooney (100).

Injury has meant a stop-start beginning to Rojo's United career, starting 11 of 22 Premier League games played this season, but when he has played, performances like the one at the weekend show why he was money well spent in the summer.
