Premier League Preview for Liverpool v QPR along with Predictions for the matches on week 38 of the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week. You can also check out the weekly EPL TV Schedule.
Both teams in this match have their positions fixed in the table. Liverpool will finish seventh and QPR will finish last in 20th place. A difference is that QPR manager, Harry Redknapp, has spoken repeatedly to the press about the poor quality and poor attitudes in his squad. On the other side, Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers, is going to continue pushing his squad and looking for a good performance.
Liverpool have looked at this season as one of transition; A new manager with a new philosophy and bringing through new, young, players. They have been ambitious and I foresee this continuing in Sunday’s match.
I believe they will play their typical style by maintaining possession and playing passes to create chances. They will still be without Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez as well as Daniel Agger, Joe Allen and Martin Kelly. Both Martin Skrtel and Raheem Sterling are doubts, but could make appearances.
For Queens Park Rangers they do have both Julio Cesar and Christopher Samba sidelined, but either one could be ready by Sunday. I do have a hard time seeing Rangers getting anything out of this match. They have not shown any ability to get themselves up for a game in a very long time. When they needed to get results they were poor and now that there’s nothing on the line, they haven’t looked any better. Their only hope is that some of these “mercenaries” will decide they need to play well to encourage interest from another team.
My prediction is a Liverpool win. This is a match that could go any number of ways, including a complete rout by Liverpool. Certainly QPR has a chance, especially with the way Liverpool has played at times by dominating matches, but never able to get the goals they need.
Liverpool (L, W, D, D, D, W, D, W) 2 – 1 QPR (L, L, D, L, L, D, L, L)
