QPR will take on Southampton on Saturday with the Saints looking to bounce back from a shock loss to Swansea which allowed Manchester United to leapfrog them in the league table. Southampton have been excellent this season but have gone through some ups and downs in form. With the return of Mane from the African Cup Of nations and the form of both Pelle and Tadic there is plenty of attacking talent in Southampton but their success this season has been built on their strong defence, the best in the league so far this year.
The Saints face a managerless QPR as Harry Redknapp has stepped down as manager due to personal issues. With QPR having lost every away game this year their only saving grace has been their home form. With five wins and four draws at home though QPR have been solid at home and they know they must win these games to give themselves any sort of chance of survival. With Charlie Austin having a terrific year and in the top four scoeres in the league table, QPR need both Austin to continue to fire in goals and the rest of the squad to start chipping in.
Not a game I love here but I am going to take QPR to win straight up. While Southampton are the better side QPR have shown that they know how to win ar home and Charlie Austin has been excellent all season.
