Rafael produced one of the goals of the season to put Manchester United ahead against QPR at Loftus Road.

The Brazilian full-back ran onto a loose ball and smashed a first-time volley into the top corner, beating the outstretched dive of his countryman Julio Cesar and lighting up a sleepy Premier League encounter midway through the first half.
