Liverpool v QPR: Premier League match preview
A look ahead to this weekend's Premier League fixture at Anfield
Sunday 19 May 2013
Liverpool's veteran defender Jamie Carragher will say goodbye to Anfield as he plays his final game for the club and hangs up his boots.
The former England international has made 737 appearances for the club over seventeen seasons and it will be an emotional goodbye for the Liverpool born player. Brendan Rodgers will be hoping that the terrific form of Daniel Sturridge and Countinho continues as his team look to make it eight games without defeat and cap off a solid first season for the former Swansea manager.
It’s been a completely different story for QPR and Harry Redknapp this season, as the Hoops sit bottom of the Premier League table with Championship football awaiting them in August.
Redknapp has also had a week to forget following QPR’s top scorer Loic Remy being arrested on suspicion of rape, the striker who joined the club in January has been a rare bright spark for the Hoops and he looks set to leave in the summer following their relegation. He is however available to play on Sunday, if Redknapp chooses to use him.
KICK-OFF: Sunday, 4pm.
PAST THREE MEETINGS…
QPR 0 Liverpool 3 (Suarez x2, Agger), Premier League, December 2012
