QPR are second from bottom in the Premier League and the visit of Manchester United will be viewed as a must win game for Harry Redknapp's men as they look to get out of the relegation zone. QPR's home form has kept them in touch with the other relegation zone teams as they have only lost two games all season at home and are unbeaten since losing a 3-2 thriller to Liverpool. Charlie Austin has been superb this year and is third in the scoring charts. Austin is the vital cog in QPR's fight for survival and unless Harry Redknapp goes out and does some January deal I think QPR may just be destined for relegation. Their home form must stay perfect if they are to survive and this is a tough one as they face a Manchester United team full of superstars.
Manchester United are unbeaten in their last six away games but have only won three of those games. United have really struggled away from home to convert their chances. Draws with Stoke, Villa and Tottenham have left the team back in fourth had they converted those draws to wins they would only be five points off top. With Di Maria, Falcao, Rooney and Van Persie there is plenty of attacking firepower but they have failed to put it together away from Old Trafford. The first game that this new look United played well though was in the 4-0 victory against QPR in Old Trafford will Saturday bring a repeat of this or will United's away struggles continue?
I dont think United should be 3/5 favourites over anyone away from home right now but I am getting it very hard to trust QPR in this spot either. I'm going to take the overs here. I think both teams have struggled defensively and with Austin on fire for QPR and so much attacking talent on the Manchester United team this one should go over and could do so early.
