The current Premier League leaders travel to Loftus Road on a run of form that has seen many tip them to win a few trophies this season. City are scintillating and their 3-0 thumping of Villarreal in midweek established their quality as a top European club. Roberto Mancini has his players ticking and they picked up a 3-1 win over Wolves last weekend to maintain their lead at the top of the table.
QPR’s last home game was their 1-0 win over a nine-man Chelsea and Neil Warnock’s side will be looking for another upset over a top four side. QPR players have hinted that they will adopt a physical approach against City, but the technical quality that Mancini’s men have should see them totally dominate the newly promoted side 3-0.
