Tottenham travel across London to take on QPR in another London derby the third of the week. Spurs are looking to move up to sixth just a point behind Liverpool. Manuel Pochettino will be looking to Harry Kane and Christian Erikson to continue their terrific seasons. Spurs will also need more from their midfield if they are to get a win here against a QPR team that are in serious danger of becoming detached in the relegation zone. Tottenham have lost three of their last six away games and they face a QPR team that have picked up most of their points this season at home. Dembele, Lamela, Mason and Chadli have been good of late but Tottenham's strength in depth has been found wanting of late with the team struggling to put together results and being knocked out of the Europa League and losing the League Cup final.
QPR will be desperate for the three points and after playing well against Arsenal midweek but still coming up short this is a game that QPR must get something from. Charlie Austin scored his fifteenth goal of the season midweek and has been one of the players of the season so far. QPR will look to Austin to lead the way up front and Austin will be assisted by Fer and Zamora. Hoilett has played well in the games I have seen him play this season but is too inconsistant and has not produced enough quality from his crossing to consistantly start. QPR's biggest problem though has been their defence which has conceded the most goals in the league this year.
Tough game to call here. I think QPR are going to fancy their chances against a Tottenham team that have struggled recently. At the same time I think the quality Tottenham have up front with Kane and with Erikson, Dembele, Lamela in midfield I think Tottenham will have enough to get a win here. Either way though I think we see goals and I am taking the overs here in what should be an entertaining game.
