Liverpool will fancy their chances of putting three points on the board this weekend when they go to a QPR side looking to get off the bottom of the table in the Premier League.
Liverpool are the strong favourites heading into the game and they are ahead in terms of basic attacking and defensive stats with more goals scored and fewer conceded from matches so far this season.
It could be a very long day at the office for QPR because Liverpool’s accurate passing stats suggest that they will look to dominate possession and control the game over the course of 90 minutes.
QPR have actually won more individual duels this season, which shows they have players with good core strength dotted around the team and that’s one way they could look to win the ball back; by easing Liverpool players out of possession.
They’re also not too far behind the Reds in terms of accurate crosses this season, which suggests they could take advantage of any space Liverpool leave as they press and chase the game.
Conclusion: This is ultimately a game that’s going to come down to how well QPR can defend. If they can try and keep a clean sheet and frustrate Liverpool they stand a chance of getting a point but Brendan Rodger’s side should have enough firepower to get over the line.
