QPR vs Manchester United by Neuro
QPR failed to get a positive result last weekend away to Burnley, even though it was a game against a rival that was in the same situation and surely beatable in some way. However, team from London left the field with empty hands suffering 2:1 defeat. It was their tenth defeat in as many games away from home this season.
Even today's victory over Manchester United won't save much of the season for them, but at least it would be a great morale boost for the roster. Biggest problem remains with the away matches and in case the team doesn't improve that, it will be very hard for them to get the salvation this time. The team simply looks like having different psychology from one match to another, being unable to play in the same, reliable and confident way for consecutive matches. Central defender Rio Ferdinand (8/0) remains doubtful and might not play here with Richard Dunne who is under heavy criticism taking his place, while participation of defensive midfielder Sandro (8/0) is also questionable. Left back Yun Suk-Young (10/0) is surely out with an injury, same as offensive midfielder Alejandro Faurlin (2/0)/.
After a great run of undefeated matches where the team also had significant number of draws, Manchester United had quite poor game at home against Southampton and suffered narrow 0:1 defeat. They were slightly better, but without great goalscoring chances and without imposing fast paced tempo, but got 1:0 down in the scoreline in 69th minute, without responding correctly later on.
It was their first home defeat since the premiere game when they lost to Swansea, while the team broke a streak of eleven undefeated matches. They have a very good recent tradition playing against QPR and are surely much more superior side in many aspects, aiming nothing but the victory here. Van Persie and Falcao are expected to take their positions, while doubtful remain right back Rafael (9/0) who was missing for many weeks due injury. Ashley Young (13/0) is the only sure absentee for this game, as their injury list may be at it's healthiest level all season. Falcao and Rooney are sure to lead their attack in a 3-5-2 formation.
Manchester United is slowly going into better and better form, even though they are not yet to be trusted fully. However, QPR is simply not at the same level and the moment and it will be very hard for them to stop offensive players from visiting side. Easy or hard, United should get the three points and bounce back to winning ways immediately.
