Louis van Gaal takes his men to Loftus Road as Manchester United face Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League clash on Saturday.

Where to watch

Kick-off is at 4pm GMT. Catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day 2 on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:25pm GMT.


QPR are struggling in the Premier League this season as their poor form continued, managing just five wins from 21 games played so far this season. The Hoops are without a win in the last five matches played in all competitions.

Harry Redknapp is aware that his side need to bounce back in order to avoid further trouble at Loftus Road. However, the former Tottenham boss has an uphill challenge when the 20-times English champions visit the capital.

Meanwhile, United are not in great form as their 11-match unbeaten run in all competitions ended last weekend, when Southampton managed to defeat Louis van Gaal's side at Old Trafford.

In addition to this, United have managed only one win in the last five league matches. The Dutchman will be hoping to bounce back against QPR and seal three points to regain the momentum in the second half of the season.

What managers say

Harry Redknapp: "I like Shaun Wright-Phillips. I haven't got a minute's problem with Shaun Wright-Phillips. We have offered him opportunities to go out on loan but he has not wanted to go. You have opinions on players - some you want, some you don't. That is what makes the football game go round. Somebody else might come in and put him in the team."

Louis van Gaal: "It's always the same [QPR will be fully motivated for tomorrow's clash], because Manchester United is a big club."
