Charlie Austin eased QPR into life without Loic Remy by ending the Loftus Road club's new-season goal drought in a victory over Sunderland.

The former Burnley striker bagged his first Premier League goal to end Rangers' 315-minute scoring drought in their fourth clash of the new campaign.

Harry Redknapp's men were desperate for both goals and points after successive defeats to Hull, Tottenham and Burton, and had Austin to thank for a thumping first-half finish.

Meanwhile, Chelsea triggered Remy's £8.5million release clause, with the France striker withdrawn from action in the clash.

The 27-year-old failed a medical at Liverpool at the start of the summer, but is now set to complete his Stamford Bridge move to replace AC Milan-bound Fernando Torres.
