After a week in which Raheem Sterling was supposedly tired and rested by his national manager in a must win game in Estonia Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool will turn to the youngster to take on even more responsability. As Liverpool are struggling up front and suffered more bad news when it was revealed Daniel Sturridge will miss another 2-4 weeks after suffering a set back in training. Mario Balotelli will be the lone center forward but Sterling will look to join him up front at every opportunity and the pair will rely on Couthino and Gerrard to provide the through balls. Rodgers side has had a poor start to the season but still only lie three points from fourth place, a win on Sunday and Liverpool will move back in the right direction.
While Liverpool have been poor, QPR have been downright awful, bottom of the table with four points from seven games and three losses in their last four. Harry Redknapp will look to this game as a possible win, QPR are simply going to have to win their home games. Defensively Ferdinand and Caulker are struggling to get a partnership but Ferdinand's experience should benefit the team and if QPR can get some goals then their defence should be in a position to keep them in game but the problem for QPR is the lack of goals in the team. Charlie Austin, Vargas and Hoilett have struggled to find the net and its those struggles that have QPR where they are can they take advantage of a porous Liverpool defence?

I think we have two struggling teams here but Liverpool do have the better team. The price on a liverpool win though is too short for me to represent any value. I'm going to take both teams to score because i think QPR can score at home and Liverpool with Sterling and Balotelli should have enough to get past QPR's struggling back four.
