QPR will be without captain Joey Barton, who is still serving a three match ban, while Nedum Onuoha, Mauricio Isla, and Darnell Furlong all remain doubtful due to injury. Spurs are fit but more than likely in need of a few changes as the same starting XI played in Sunday’s League Cup Final loss to Chelsea and Wednesday’s Premier League win to Swansea.
Queens Park Rangers come into the match having lost six of their last seven Premier League games, with just one win since Christmas Day (away at Sunderland) and are also winless in 2015 at home, losing three of their five games at Loftus Road.
Spurs’ win over Swansea in the midweek is their first in six games across all competitions and have also scored a Premier League leading twenty goals in the calendar year. This is countered by the fact that Spurs have also only kept one clean sheet in their last eleven Premier League matches on the road.
Predictions: Charlie Austin is too good and will score, but QPR’s defense leaks goals. QPR 1-2 Spurs
