Chelsea move closer to securing the 14/15 Premier League title after yet another unconvincing but ultimately victorious display at Loftus Road.
For the majority of the game it was the hosts who looked more like scoring, with Thibaut Courtois pulling off a number of saves.
With the game looking headed for a goalless draw, a result which would have give some hope to the likes of Arsenal and Man Utd, the Blues pushed for the winner.
However, the goal would come courtesy of an almighty balls-up from ‘keeper Rob Green, whose fluffed kick allowed Eden Hazard to set up an attack on the left-flank.

The Hoops backline were slow to respond to the attack, leaving the previously anonymous Cesc Fabregas free to fire home a precious winner for the Blues. Indeed, that effort, on 87 minutes, was the visitors first shot on target of the whole game.
Poor old Chris Ramsey was, understandably gutted by the late goal. Although Chelsea coach Rui Faria didn’t look too concerned with the QPR boss’ heartbreak… The win sees Jose Mourinho’s men go seven points clear of second-placed Arsenal, with the Blues still having a game in hand. That’s the title done and dusted one imagines. As for Chris Ramsey and QPR, they stay 18th, two points shy of safety.
Here are the highlights…
