Team News

  • Sir Alex Ferguson may change things up in his side after losing at Carrow Road last week, as well as the fact that Wayne Rooney is likely to return from a bout of tonsillitis. Javier Hernandez has been in great form recently but was below par against Norwich and may be dropped for Rooney's return
  • It was announced this week that Shinji Kagawa will miss several more weeks due to his knee injury.
  • Jonny Evans missed the trip to Norwich with a groin injury and though he has trained this week, he is still expected to miss out.
  • It was announced this week that Bobby Zamora requires surgery on a hip injury and will be out for between 3 and 4 months. Djibril Cisse will come in, but with their goalscoring problems, QPR may look to strengthen in January.
  • Fabio has recovered from injury but is ineligible to play against his parent club.
  • Stephane Mbia returns from suspension and should replace Ryan Nelsen at the heart of the defence.
  • Jose Bosingwa misses out through illness.

Prediction

  • Manchester United will be keen to get back to winning ways after losing out last week at Norwich, and they will be glad to have rock-bottom QPR visiting Old Trafford for this match.
  • Mark Hughes was sacked on Friday morning, so assistant Mark Bowen will take charge of the side for this game. His side have picked up just one point from six matches away from home this season, and that point came in their first away game, since which they have lost all 5 in a row.
  • Expect a United backlash after the disappointing result last week and a rest for the vast majority of their first team in the Champions League in midweek. As usual, QPR will battle, but anything other than a dominant home win is extremely unlikely.

  • Another comeback ! ;)

  • they don't have coach but viva asian football player

  • With a new manager in Harry Rednapp all be it looking from the stand.....it creates a stage for the QPR players to show what they got and try to prove themselves for there new first team.....i still think they will lose but i think they will score. 3-1

  • I think Man Utd scores at least two more than QPR

  • Have a feeling Nani will start this one. Young has been dismal
