QPR Crest

Here are the potential teams for the game between QPR and Chelsea this weekend.

To be played on Sunday 12th April 2015 at 13:30. Venue: Loftus Road Stadium, London

Odds: QPR 17/2, Draw 17/4, Chelsea 2/5

Queens Park Rangers manager Chris Ramsey will be hoping his team can build on their hard earned point away at Aston Villa when they take on London rivals Chelsea this weekend.

QPR are still scrapping away near the bottom of the Premier League table and need to put points on the board to give themselves the best possible chance of staying up.

The side can take heart from the way they have played against some of the top sides at home this season and they need to make the most of a passionate home crowd.

Chelsea know that a win puts them one step closer to the Premier League crown and Jose Mourinho will ensure that his team are difficult to get the better of in this game.

Chelsea currently have a seven point lead at the top of the table, which they can extend to ten if they win their game in hand.

Whichever team Mourinho selects for this game, the Blues have match winners all over the pitch who can make the difference in a tight and intense game.
