Queens Park Rangers vs Hull City team news: Loic Remy starts up front for the new boys
Harry Redknapp will play with three at the back against Hull
Saturday 16 August 2014
Harry Redknapp will play a 3-5-2 formation for Queens Park Rangers' opening match of the Premier League season.
Rio Ferdinand and Steven Caulker will form a new-look defence alongside stalwart Richard Dunne, while there is a place for Jordan Mutch, a £5m signing from Cardiff, in midfield.
Despite speculation linking him with moves to Liverpool and Newcastle this summer, Loic Remy will start up front for Redknapp. The French striker was a lone bright spark for the Toon last term, scoring 14 Premier League goals.
Steve Bruce names three new transfers in his XI, with Andrew Robertson, a £2.85m signing from Dundee United, Tom Ince and Robert Snodgrass all being named.
Jake Livermore, who impressed on loan at the Tigers last season, is also in the side after his move was made permanent.
QPR: Green, Caulker, Ferdinand, Dunne, Simpson, Traore, Barton, Mutch, Faurlin, Remy, Austin
Hull City: McGregor, Davies, Chester, Bruce, Elmohamady, Robertson, Huddlestone, Livermore, Snodgrass, Ince, Jelavic
