Premier League: Manchester United v Queens Park Rangers match preview
A look ahead to this weekend's Premier League fixture at Old Trafford
Friday 23 November 2012
Manchester United will be looking to bounce back from their shock loss to Norwich when they host QPR in the Premier League on Saturday. United lost top spot to cross-town rivals Manchester City last week when they suffered a surprising 1-0 defeat at Norwich.
That loss broke a run of five consecutive wins in the league and allowed City to move to the summit, one point clear of United. Sir Alex Ferguson's men suffered another 1-0 loss midweek in the Champions League, but with qualification already secured they fielded an under-strength side for the trip to Galatasaray.
QPR, who are still searching for their first league win of the season, remain rooted to the bottom of the table with just four points to show from their opening 12 games. The club is in turmoil with the sacking of manager Mark Hughes before the game.
