Villa

No midweek games means that some of the players who have looked in need of a break (Gerrard, Allen, Sterling) should look a bit fresher against Villa. Suarez too obviously.

 

Assuming Enrique is fit again by then, the team pretty much picks itself. The only question mark is who gets the 3rd forward spot.

Sterling Suarez Suso

 

Gerrard and Allen have been off form lately and if Villa come for a point we'll need the creativity of Suso and Sahin to try and open things up. Shelvey can add that drive from midfield.

Villa's away record is W1 D2 L5 - scoring just 4 whilst conceding 15.

 

However, they come into this game on the back of 3 draws and 1 win in which they have scored only 2 but conceded just 1 so there are signs of some improvement and tightening up at the back since they conceded 8 in 2 games to the two Manchester teams in early November.

 

They play on Tuesday in the Capital One Cup away to Norwich so some injurytime wouldnt go a miss.

 

We're heavy favourites at 2/5 with a Villa win at 15/2.

 

They could line up as follows;

 

Guzan

 

Lowton Clark Baker Lichaj

 

Bannan Westwood Herd Holman Agbonlahor

 

Benteke

 

 

 

If we have a clean bill of health I would go with the following but there is no update yet on Enrique;

 

Reina

 

Johnson Skrtel Agger Downing

 

Gerrard Lucas Allen

 

Sterling Suarez Enrique

Have a feeling the results comparison obsessives might go very quiet over the next few weeks.

We all know we're going to be QPR's first win of the season, right?

Losing that lead against them was an incredible low point. Hard to think of another occasion when we've capitulated like that. The anti-Istanbul.

 

 

There was one where Les Ferdinand ran us feckin ragged all on his own that sticks in my memory, think they went down that year too.

I'd give Allen a break.

 

Also, if Cole can get himself into the box, he'd be worth his weight in gold. ;)/>

 

 

Enrique is a doubt, isn't he? He went off with a tight hamstring in the first half yesterday.

Yeah, I'm assuming that it shouldnt be too much of a problem if they risked playing him with a tight hammy against WHU hoping that it would sort itself out over the course of the game.

 

Is Wisdom fit?
