Recent respective form guides

Queens Park Rangers's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Rangers have scored 6, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Manchester City's away form is none too clever either, picking up four victories from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 10 goals for the Sky Blues, and 4 goals against.

Queens Park Rangers find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 23 games have yielded only 15 points.

Manchester City's total of 51 points from their 23 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Barclays Premier League.
