The Premier league’s bottom club will host the top when Man United visit Loftus Road tomorrow. Things couldn’t be going much better for United at the moment; 12 points clear of Man City at the top of the table, into the FA Cup quarter finals and a fine draw at Real Madrid still in the memory. A win will take them 15 points clear before City have to host Chelsea on Sunday.

QPR’s situation is the total opposite: they’re 4 points adrift at the bottom of the table, 7 from safety and they were hammered 4-1 by Swansea in their last league game. Harry Redknapp needs 3 points desperately to put some pressure on the teams around them and lift the spirits at the club.

Harry will take some positives from the fact that Wayne Rooney and Phil Jones look set to miss the game, but his own striker Loic Remy is a doubt due to a groin problem.

Top vs Bottom is always far trickier for the top team than what appears at face value. United will be heavy favourites and will face a QPR side that are in dire need of some points. Redknapp’s men will need some huge performances and try to prey on any weakness in the United line up that they can think of.

Here are 5 key battles to look out for tomorrow at Loftus Road.
