Manchester United v QPR Preview | Key Men, Stats and Team News

Domestic football returns after the first international break of the season and this Sunday’s 4pm kick-off sees a struggling Manchester United host QPR at Old Trafford. The late transfer market spree from Manchester United failed to include a centre-half, but the signings of Danny Blind and Radamel Falcao will strengthen the United squad.

At this stage in the season, winning at home against fellow strugglers is pivotal and when playing as well as QPR were for the first 45 minutes, going on  to lose the game was even more painful.

Chelsea v QPR | Lampard v Barton

In the lead up to the derby between Queens Park Rangers and Chelsea there is a battle in midfield that is key and also has a bit of history. Joey Barton on Frank Lampard:
“Honestly, I think I’m the best English midfielder. Luka Modric and Samir Nasri are very good, but in terms of English players … Well, Jack Wilshere isn’t bad, but Frank Lampard’s on the way down and Steven Gerrard’s been injured a lot.”

QPR and The Mark Hughes Effect

QPR and The Mark Hughes Effect

Three games into the Mark Hughes era at Queens Park Rangers and life at Loftus Road seems far more cheerful. Extortionate ticket prices for the FA Cup, disappointing tweets from our 'leader' aimed at the man who got us back into the Premier League and little transfer activity aside, QPR have clawed themselves back out of the drop zone. After an unlucky loss at Newcastle, an important victory at home to bottom side Wigan and a third round replay win …
