QPR vs CHELSEA
It’s back to the Premier League again this week with so much to play for.
We have the Manchester derby with City now fourth and under pressure and we have the race to the bottom with the relegation battle as close as its ever been. Picking the three to go down is as difficult as picking the winner of the National. Anyway here’s my predictions for the weekend ahead.
QPR V Chelsea
A super draw for Rangers mid week at Villa in a game they could easily have won. This is a different story all the same. The league leaders are in town and they will want all three points to fend off something of a shaky enough run in recent weeks. Diego Costa is missing with a hamstring problem.
We can expect the home fans to be in good voice as John Terry will be there along with his “alleged racist remarks”. We all remember the fuss that time If you have forgotten the Rangers fans haven’t.
Again here goes another fact. Chelsea have failed to win away at QPR in their last thirteen games.
Chelsea have scored in 24 of their 30 league games and their next goal will be goal number 100 for the season.
They will score and they will win although it won’t be easy.
