Overview

The Premier League returns after two weeks of international break and the Hoops have been struggling in the league this season. Harry Redknapp has seen his side register only one win in all competitions this season, which came during their 1-0 league win over Sunderland at home.

QPR would be hoping for a win against last season's runners-up and the former Tottenham Hotspur manager would be keen to avoid another defeat when they face the Merseyside club on Sunday.

In the last fixture, QPR suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of West Ham United prior to the international break.

Liverpool come into the game after registering a 2-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion. Summer signing Adam Lallana netted his first goal for the Anfield club before Jordan Henderson's strike sealed three points for Brendan Rodgers' side.

The Northern Irishman could rest a few of his key players as they take on Champions League winners Real Madrid in the European clash at Anfield on Wednesday. However, Liverpool will be relying to get three points when they face QPR in the league clash.

What Managers Say

Harry Redknapp: "It was never going to be easy this season. There's been a big upheaval. The lads haven't hit the ground running. There's still so much time left this season. There's still so many games to play. I'm confident we'll be fine."

Brendan Rodgers: "I'm quite relaxed on it all and we will look at it after 10 games to see how we're set. There's no crisis - we lost a world class player [Luis Suarez to Barcelona] and brought a number in."
