Predicted QPR and Everton line-ups: Both sides under pressure

Loftus Road QPR

Here are the teams QPR and Everton could go with this weekend.

To be played on Sunday 22nd March 2015 at 16:00. Venue: Loftus Road Stadium, London

Odds: QPR 5/2, Draw 5/2, Everton 13/10

Queens Park Rangers are under big pressure as they prepare to take on Everton in the Premier League this weekend.

QPR need to try and find a way to put pressure on the Toffees and get three points, which will go a long way to helping their bid to avoid a drop down back into the Championship after just one season.

Chris Ramsey needs to find a way to inspire his side and give the home crowd something to shout about for this big game.

Roberto Martinez is also facing a challenge with the Toffees because the pressure is on following the side’s disappointing exit from the Europa League.

The Everton defence imploded last night and fans will want to see a much more resilient performance in the match this weekend.

Everton have a bit of a cushion above the bottom three but the manager will be wary of getting dragged down into the scrap between the teams just below them.

A win for QPR probably won’t be quite enough to drag the team out of the bottom three, while a win for Everton could move them up two places if other results go their way.
