A solitary Shaun Wright-Phillips goal was all that separated the two teams in terms of scorelines and started QPR's 2013 off with a bang.
Every man played his part in the first victory at Stamford Bridge since 1989, but some had more impact on the game than others. Junior Hoilett, Ji-Sung Park and Kieron Dyer won't get a rating as they didn't have enough time on the pitch to warrant a fair assessment.
Here are my player ratings of the 11 men that gave QPR their unbeaten start to the year. As always, you don't have to agree, so let me know your thoughts in the comments box below.
