QPR boss Harry Redknapp hailed his team's battling draw against the champions – and said it had put his team back in with a shout of beating the drop.
“We've put ourselves back in touching distance,” Redknapp said.
“I was quite happy with a point against the league champions. They rip teams to pieces home and away. You'd take a point off them any time. It's a team full of quality and it's a fantastic result.
“We defended fantastically all over the park and hit them on the counter-attack a couple of times.
“It was another solid performance, another clean sheet and it's another big point for us today.
“That's on the back of Chelsea away, Tottenham at home and West Ham away. It's a fantastic run we've been on, I think.
"You just have to give everything in these games and we're working as hard as we possibly can and clawing out some points.”
The Hoops manager added: “Everybody worked and did their jobs today and the players have been excellent. The attitude's been good. Anybody we bring in here now has got to buy into the work ethic.”
