Arsenal great Ian Wright predicts Queens Park Rangers to suffer relegation from Premier League

Arsenal legend Ian Wright predicts Queens Park Rangers, Leicester City and Hull City to be relegated from the Premier League.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has told The Sun that Queens Park Rangers will suffer relegation from the Premier League at the end of the season.

London outfit Rangers are currently second from bottom in the league table with 19 points from 23 matches, a point behind 17th-placed Burnley.

Former Arsenal striker Wright believes that QPR will return to the Championship, along with Leicester City and Hull City.

“I think the bottom three will be QPR, Leicester and Hull - in no particular order - because they're in terrible form and you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel at the minute,” the 51-year-old told The Sun.

Wright made the comments on Monday evening when Harry Redknapp was still the QPR manager. The former Tottenham Hotspur boss resigned from his position earlier today, and, as of yet, he has yet to be replaced.

Many Premier League followers will agree with Wright’s prediction, though. Leicester, Hull and QPR are all out of form at the moment, and improvement in results do not appear to be on the horizon.

While Hull continue to struggle for goals, Rangers have a terrible away record and Leicester have been arguably the worst team in the Premier League so far this season.

However, given how the teams just above the bottom three are performing, Hull and QPR could well retain their Premier League status for the 2015-16 campaign.

Burnley, who have improved their results over the last few weeks, Aston Villa, West Bromwich Albion, Sunderland and Crystal Palace are all genuine relegation candidates.

One suspects that the relegation dogfight will go down to the wire.
