Queens Park Rangers vs Arsenal Preview

Relegated Queens Park Rangers will host an Arsenal side who is still trying to confirm their place in the top four.

When the 2012/13 season started, QPR fans and their management had high expectations, which may have contributed to the poor campaign the London side has had. Their goalless draw last weekend against Reading confirmed what many feared for quite some time now, forcing Harry Redknapp's side out of the Premier League.

Two victories at Loftus Road so far in the season are a clear indication of how QPR's season has played out. Their most recent coming on March 9th in a 3-1 victory over Sunderland. Since then, four losses and one draw have all but buried them, with a slender goal difference keeping them out of last place.

With relegation already confirmed, it will be very hard for the English manager to get the most out of his players, considering he already could not do that since his arrival at Loftus Road.

Rafael Benitez’s escape route: five clubs where the Chelsea coach could fit

Abramovich might soon lose his patience with interim manager Rafael Benitez whose appointment last November was meant to straighten the path twisted during Roberto Di Matteo’s last days at the club.

Unpopular Rafael Benitez might soon be out of Chelsea. Given the Chelsea owner’s intolerance with underachieving managers, it would be no news if Rafa suffers the sack in the very near future. However, should he remain until the end of the season, it is likely that his short-term contract at Stamford Bridge will not be extended.

So where is it next for the former Liverpool manager? We look at five clubs which could each offer Rafael Benitez an escape route.

Valencia

Valencia was the club where Benitez first enjoyed notable success. He defied all odds by guiding Los Che to their first league title in 31 years, back in 2002. They enjoyed even more success in 2004 under Benitez’s guidance as they won both La Liga and UEFA Cup titles. From then onwards, Valencia have gone on a decline. Rafa could be the man to resurrect this team which is struggling to compete with giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Should Queens Park Rangers fail to survive in the English Premier League, the balance between the players’ salaries and the club’s condition will likely create strong headaches.
The last 18 months have been really tumultuous for Queens Park Rangers, they held on by the skin of their teeth on the last day of last season. They were really lucky to stay in the Premier League despite losing to Manchester City on Matchday 38.

This season is proving to be no different; the club is in deep trouble. They have managed to pick up only 16 points after playing 24 games and are currently rock bottom of the table. Survival looks a daunting task for QPR whose recent influx of players proves the intent to remain in the top division.

Christopher Samba was signed from Anzhi Makhachkala in a late transfer. The London-based side also signed French Ligue 1 player Remy before the window closed. A host of other names were brought in during the last 18 months but positive results remain very rare.

The aging legs of David Beckham still have much to offer. After training with Arsenal, the veteran midfielder signed for PSG on Thursday. He is still one of the best when it comes to set-pieces and it would be really interesting to see how he fares for his new club. 

“I'm lucky to have achieved what I've achieved and earned what I have earned,” he told the press concerning his top deal.

“One of the reasons to come here is that with Nasser [Al Khelaifi, PSG president] and [sporting director] Leonardo, we've  decided on something quite unique.”

Chelsea vs Queens Park Rangers Preview

The Blues are one of six teams scheduled to play on Wednesday as Matchday 21 of the English Premier League comes to a close.

Anton Ferdinand refused to shake John Terry's hand when Queens Park Rangers hosted Chelsea in September 2012.Analysis

The main topic at the Bridge is around the future of Frank Lampard. This has even overshadowed the John Terry-Anton Ferdinand handshake issue which occured when both teams met in September 2012.

Veteran Lampard, who is loved by the fans, netted his 191st and 192nd goals last Sunday as Chelsea survived a real scare away to Everton. It is with sort of determined attitude that coach Benitez will want to see his side perform against Queens Park Rangers.

The hosts are going through some sort of revival under the ex-Liverpool manager who is gradually controlling the temper of Roberto Di Matteo supporters. At the exception of Arsenal, England’s biggest football clubs all enjoyed a great New Year’s Day.

Arsenal vs Queens Park Rangers Preview

Arsenal will be under pressure to get a victory after having lost their last two official matches. For the visitors, Queens Park Rangers is still looking for their first victory in the English Premier League.

The last match for the Gunners at Carrow Road did not go so well for the London side. An extremely lackluster performance with not much creativity or urgency in the offensive half carried over into their Champions League match midweek.

Fans filled the Emirates Stadium hoping to watch Arsenal bounce back from their second Premier League defeat, but once again, Arsene Wenger's side seemed out of it. Santi Cazorla's trickery and outstanding passing weren't enough for Arsenal to get the three points.

Bouncing back at home against a last-placed Queens Park Rangers will be extremely important for Arsenal.

Manchester City avoid dramatic anti-climax, QPR survive, Arsenal finish third

Manchester United were seconds away from winning the English Premier League title when Manchester City issued a dramatic comeback.

The 2011/12 English Premier League title goes to Manchester City.At Sunderland, Man United did their homework by recording a 1-0 victory thanks to Rooney’s lone goal but at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City did the impossible. The Citizens netted 2 goals in injury time to turn around a 2-1 deficit against Queens Park Rangers.

The latter got reduced to ten men early in the second period as Joey Barton kicked Carlos Tevez with his elbow. With the numerical disadvantage, City became ultra-defensive.

However, the introduction of Armand Traore was the turning point in the game. Out of nowhere, Queens Park Rangers went 2-1 up inside the 66th minute.

Traore’s run down the left wing was vital in the build up to his team’s second goal. Djibril Cisse had previously equalized Zabaleta’s first-half opener.
