DHAKA: Harry Redknapp watched from the stands as Manchester United came from behind to beat his new Queens Park Rangers side at Old Trafford.
QPR, who announced Redknapp as their new boss on Saturday morning, led when Jamie Mackie pounced from close range.
Headers from Jonny Evans and Darren Fletcher, on his first league start for over a year, put United in command.
Substitute Javier Hernandez stroked in the third as Sir Alex Ferguson`s men moved top of the Premier League table.
United`s three goals in the space of eight second-half minutes puts the pressure firmly back on neighbours Manchester City, who know they can return to the summit by beating Chelsea on Sunday.
QPR, who sacked Redknapp`s predecessor Mark Hughes on Friday, stay bottom of the table as they remain without a victory in their opening 13 matches.
But there will be plenty of positives for Redknapp to take from the match before he assumes control on Monday.
Under the guidance of Hughes`s former coaches Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki, the hard-working visitors refused to allow United any space and used their compact defensive unit as a base to catch their hosts on the break.
