Everton 2 QPR 0 match report: Clueless Rangers head for the exit

Not a great deal had happened. Then Darron Gibson's considerably deflected shot trickled over the line and all faith was visibly lost. Jose Bosingwa lay slumped on the edge of the 18-yard area trying to look bothered, the head of captain Clint Hill dipped, nestling in his chest. An hour of play remained. Yet that did not seem to matter. Queens Park Rangers were emotionally battered, beaten and almost certainly, down.

Granero: Win over Chelsea proves that new players care

The Queen's Park Rangers midfielder Esteban Granero has said that commitment to the club's cause from their new acquisitions, which was called into question by the defender Clint Hill, is no longer in doubt following their remarkable victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

Queens Park Rangers are "being rebuilt", according to the club's Malaysian owner, Tony Fernandes. It is proving a painful process. Amid all the drama at the Etihad Stadium on the final day of last season, the perilously narrow margin by which Manchester City's opponents QPR escaped relegation was rather obscured. "Never again" was the promise, yet they are back at the bottom of the Premier League with a single win from 19 games.
