QPR v Man United Recommended Bet:
While there has been much more resistance offered up from QPR since the turn of the year, those all important wins have still been elusive. They have lost just one of their last six Premier League matches now, but four of those have been draws. They way that they were brushed aside on a trip to Swansea a couple of weekends ago will have dented their optimism over survival though. That already looks a pretty long shot and the problem is that they just don’t have the goals in them. While Redknapp has tightened up what was a horrendous defence, they just can’t score goals. In their last five matches they have mustered up just two of them. They have managed just nineteen league goals all season, the lowest scoring side in the Premier League by a long shot. They have returned an average of just 0.7 goals per game. At the other end, they have conceded at a rate of over 1.5 goals per game this season. Rangers however have kept four clean sheets in their last six Premier League matches.
What’s QPR’s history against Man United like in the Premier League? Not great as they have taken just two points from eleven previous meetings in the EPL against United. Their last win at Old Trafford (the last time that they beat the Red Devils) was all the way back in 1992. Their last win over them at Loftus Road was even further back in 1989. QPR have the worst conversion rate in the top flight this term (just 85) compared to United who have the league’s best of 21%. So United don’t need a lot of opportunities to score goals and they will be expected to keep their title charge going this weekend. They actually conceded the first goal of the game when they played QPR at Old Trafford last November, but raced back to take a comfortable 3-1 win in the end. That match (which came after a defeat at Norwich), sparked a run of eleven wins and two draws in thirteen Premier League matches for Sir Alex Ferguson’s men.
United’s away record this term stands at a brilliant W9 D2 L2 and are unbeaten in their last six on their travels. They have converted at over two goals per game away from Old Trafford this term, but defensively they haven’t been that tight on the road, conceding at a rate of 1.2 goals per away game. A game plan would be for QPR to throw high balls into the box where United keeper David de Gea looks terribly vulnerable. But will the home side get enough chance to? Would it be enough anyway to possibly out-gun the Red Devils? Unlikely, not with Robin van Persie scoring as many league goals by himself as QPR have managed as a squad all season (nineteen).
QPR may dig deep and try and get a valuable point, but you have to back United for a win at odds of 1/2 away from home at online bookmaker Skybet.
