QPR vs Sunderland team news: Loic Remy left out of the squad as Harry Redknapp makes three changes
Redknapp ditches 3-5-2 formation for key clash
Harry Redknapp has made three changes to the team that was thrashed 4-0 at White Hart Lane last week, ditching the 3-5-2 formation and opting for 4-3-3.
Loic Remy has also been left out of the squad after Chelsea triggered his release clause as they look for a replacement for Fernando Torres.
Richard Dunne and Armand Traore have been replaced by Clint Hill and Junior Hoilett as Redknapp reverts to a flat-back four.
Gus Poyet has made just one change to the team that was unlucky to draw with Manchester United last week.
Adam Johnson is fit again and goes straight into the starting XI, taking the place of Will Buckley on the right wing.
Queens Park Rangers: Green, Isla, Ferdinand, Caulker, Hill, Fer, Barton, Mutch, Phillips, Austin, Hoilett
Subs: Murphy, Traore, Onuoha, Henry, Dunne, Zamora, Taarabt
Sunderland: Mannone, Vergini, Van Aanholt, Brown, O'Shea, Cattermole, Larsson, Rodwell, Johnson, Wickham, Fletcher.
Subs: Pantilimon, Jones, Bridcutt, Gomez, Altidore, Giaccherini, Buckley.
