City clinched the Premier League trophy on goal difference from their cross town rivals Manchester United but with just four minutes of the season remaining it looked as if United would retain their crown.
Pablo Zabaleta put the hosts ahead just before the break and the team that had only dropped two points at home all season looked set to coast to glory against the team with the worst away record in the topflight.
But just after the restart a Joleon Lescott mistake allowed Djibril Cisse to level, but when the R’s Joey Barton was shown red for a clash with Carlos Tevez the balance seemed to swing in favour of the home side.
For QPR there was also celebration, as with Bolton only drawing at Stoke it means the R’s retain their Premier ship status, whilst the Wanderers are relegated.
