Harry Redknapp: QPR can beat Manchester United
The relegation threatened side take on the league leaders on Saturday
QPR manager Harry Redknapp is in boisterous mood ahead of his side's encounter against Manchester United, stating his side are capable of pulling off a shock this Saturday.
The fixture will see the top and bottom team in the division meet at Loftus Road, with few giving the basement dwellers any chance of a result against the runaway league leaders.
Yet Redknapp has pointed to his side's recent results as evidence that Sir Alex Ferguson's side should not be taking the visit to Loftus Road lightly.
"You can't predict results," Redknapp told the Fulham Chronicle.
"We're playing Chelsea away on the back of being smashed to pieces by Liverpool. What's the score going to be you might ask? 3-0, and 4-0 to them? I was surprised as you were.
"We then play Tottenham at home who've beaten everybody away and have scored in all away games - and they don't score against us."
With other decent results picked up since taking charge at the west London club, Redknapp is certain QPR will be able to take all three points from Ferguson's side.
"Against Man City who are champions, we get another great point and then another at West Ham, which is a hard place to go," he said.
"So we're just as capable of getting something against Man U as anyone else."
QPR are seven points from safety with 12 games remaining.
