Rodney Marsh's bold QPR prediction - despite another Premier League defeat

The former Queens Park Rangers man was defiant on Twitter despite the west London side's 3-1 loss at Crystal Palace.

Rodney Marsh is confident QPR will remain a Premier League team next season despite yet another defeat on Saturday afternoon.

The R's lost 3-1 to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, adding further misery to their already forlorn-looking campaign.

Marsh, however, remained defiant on Twitter, believing his former side most certainly will stay up this term.

And how QPR will pull off the great escape is by switching to a 4-4-2 formation, according to their former forward.

Marsh has spoken up before about the west London side's need to play a more traditional system - dating back to when Harry Redknapp was at Loftus Road - but the club are yet to heed the call.

Judging by Matty Phillips' wonder consolation goal, there is life in QPR yet...

But, judging by the rest of their performance at Crystal Palace, time really is running out for a side completely out of form.

Wilfried Zaha and co made mince meat of QPR as Chris Ramsey's men looked lost in south London. Next up for the R's is a home clash against Everton - before a trip to West Brom.

Crystal Palace, meanwhile, have moved to within two points of Alan Pardew's former side Newcastle United before the Magpies' trip to Everton on Sunday afternoon.
