QPR Stun The Blues

Bottom-club Queens Park Rangers pulled off a shocking upset as they beat Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

Former Chelsea man Shuan Wright-Phillips scored the game’s only goal as the Blues saw a three game winning streak come grinding to a halt.

The first half produced very little in the way of chances as Ivanovic skied two long range effort and Rafael Benitez was left pacing the touchline anxiously.

Perhaps he saw potential for an upset if his players could not get find a crucial goal and they continued to toil without success after the break.

Marko Marin produced a fine ball across the goal minutes into the second period but Victor Moses was able to do no better than poke it wide.

David Luiz then saw his shot blocked and Julio Cesar got across well to save Fernando Torres’ follow up effort.

QPR did have their chances but they were few and far between with Shuan Derry heading over midway through the second.

Luiz tried his luck again not long after but could not keep his shot down and Moses was similarly wasteful.

In the 78th minute the traveling support were sent into delirium when Wright-Phillips scored although the player did not celebrate himself after pocketing the ball into the back of the net.

Ivanovic had been Chelsea’s most dangerous attacking player during the game and he went close with a header as the hosts pushed for a goal but QPR hung on for a famous win.
