Tottenham vs QPR – Premier League preview and team news

Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to continue his good start in the Tottenham manager’s job when his side host London rivals Queens Park Rangers.

New signing Eric Dier scored a dramatic late winner to secure a hard-earned win away to West Ham United in a game which looked to be going against them when they saw Kyle Naughton sent off and a penalty awarded for the Hammers. They then went on to win the first leg of their Europa League qualifier in Cyprus, with Erik Lamela starring as he aims to make up for a disappointing first season in England.

Harry Redknapp visits White Hart Lane as an opposing manager for the first time since he was sacked by Spurs in 2012, and he is sure to receive a fine reception from supporters. He saw his side lose at home to Hull City on opening day, but will feel that his side has the quality to compete in the top-flight, particularly with Loic Remy back playing for the club and Chile stars Mauricio Isla and Eduardo Vargas having joined on loan.

Naughton will miss out for Spurs due to his suspension for the red card against West Ham, and fellow defender Kyle Walker is also not in contention.

QPR could hand a debut to £8m signing Leroy Fer as well as Isla and Vargas. Junior Hoilett and Matt Phillips could both be given starts after coming off the bench against Hull.
