Stats Preview: QPR without star man ahead of Everton clash

Everton Goodison

Ahead of Everton's Premier League clash with Queens Park Rangers, we bring you all the best Opta Stats.

Roberto Martinez's Everton are in desperate need of three points as they take on Queens Park Rangers on Monday evening.

After an eight-game run without a defeat through October and November, the Toffees now find themselves in 13th place on the Premier League table, having experienced four matches without a win.

Meanwhile, Harry Redknapp will be desperate to keep his side out of the relegation zone. The Rangers manager saw his side move out of the bottom three after they secured a 2-0 over Burnley a week ago.

Here are the top five statistics ahead of Monday evening's encounter:

7 - QPR have lost all seven Premier League away games this season, scoring just two goals. Nevertheless, Everton have only won two of their last eight Premier League games at Goodison Park (W2 D3 L3). 

8 - Everton have made more errors leading directly to goals than any other team in the top division this season (8). Queens Park Rangers, meanwhile, have made just the one costly mistake.
