Queens Park Rangers will be hoping the luck goes their way when they host Aston Villa in the Premier League this evening.

Harry Redknapp’s side were unlucky to lose against Liverpool in their last home match and they badly need three points to start climbing the table and pulling away from the relegation places.

A win for QPR takes the side to within a point of Sunderland.

Aston Villa have had a whole week to mull over the 3-0 defeat they were served at Goodison Park, which left manager Paul Lambert frustrated after the game.

Villa made a good start to the season but have since fallen off the pace domestically, which has put the side under pressure heading into this game.

A win for Aston Villa takes them above Everton and just behind Manchester United in the table.
