Manchester United vs QPR 2014-15 Premier League Preview & Prediction

by Rory Kernaghan | Posted on Saturday, September 6th, 2014 | 0

20-time league champions and champions of Europe, Manchester United will play host to London side Queens Park Rangers this Sunday Sept. It has been a rough ride for United this season, as they have only managed two draws and a loss in their quest to become this season’s champions. QPR have lost two without scoring and picked up their first win as they beat Sunderland last week. Will Quuens Park Rangers become the latest side to upset Manchester United at home?

Louis Van Gaal’s Reds have certainly been the under achievers in the 2014-15 Premier League season to this point, but recent signings Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria could well make a big impact against QPR. It really is a lottery trying to guess how the Red Devils are going to play, but their recent form would suggest not well. My advice would be get out there and keep the play fluid and open. Back to the champagne play of the 90’s.

QPR 0-1 Hull City

Tottenham 4-0 QPR

QPR 1-0 Sunderland

Although not playing well in their first two outings of the 2014-15 season, the London side have picked up 3 points from their recent win over Sunderland. Harry Redknapp’s Hoops certainly have the team to beat United in their current form, and I would actually say that QPR are under achieving thus far also. The key to victory for QPR at Old Trafford is to capitalize on the Red Devil’s earkly season nerves, and just pour on constant pressure up front. Force errors and don’t let United have their way.

It’s always hard to bet against Man Utd at home, even with their recent form. QPR could well pull the win out of the bag, but I suspect Louis Van Gaal’s Red Devils will come out all guns blazing. Perhaps not the glory days that United fans are used to, but a solid 2-1 victory for United against Queens Park Rangers is what I predict.
