Liverpool fully prepared for QPR, says Dalglish

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish will ensure his side are ready to face Queens Park Rangers on Wednesday night, the Independent has reported, adding that his side will respect their hosts despite their lowly position in the Premier League.

Dalglish said: “We expect a really difficult game. It doesn’t matter who you are playing, form goes out of the window and it only matters what happens on the day. It doesn’t matter to us what position a team is in the league, we still have respect for everyone.

QPR go into the match in 18th place, inside the relegation zone and a point adrift of Bolton Wanderers who occupy 17th. Mark Hughes’ side are also level on points with the two teams below them in a desperately tight relegation battle but hold a substantially better goal difference – minus 19 – than the sides around them. Bottom club Wolves are on minus 33, Wigan Athletic, a place above Wolves have minus 29, while Bolton are on minus 26.

When Liverpool hosted the R’s at Anfield in December it took a Luis Suarez goal to defeat the side then led by Neil Warnock. Liverpool that day recorded 21 shots to QPR’s six, with the victory taking them to sixth in the table.
