Ahead of the match at Loftus Road, we take a look at how the sides' players Joey Barton and Michael Carrick compare.

Louis van Gaal will hope his United side can end a run of three matches without a win when they travel to QPR.

The Red Devils' have netted just once in their last three league games and failed to register a shot on target in their 1-0 loss to Southampton at Old Trafford on Sunday. Although it was United’s first defeat in ten league matches, the languid performance raised questions over Van Gaal’s preferred 3-5-2 system and fans have been calling for the introduction of Colombian striker Radamel Falcao to liven things up.
