Harry Redknapp faces a tough task to keep QPR in the Premier League

Published Add your comment

Queens Park Rangers suffered another 4-0 loss at the weekend, the second time they have succumbed to such a scoreline in five Premier League games.

Can Harry Redknapp keep the Super Hoops in the Premier League? Well, it's going to be hard.

Newly-promoted QPR thought they were in good hands back in the top-flight with Redknapp still in charge, but it looks like he may struggle with Sunday's heavy loss against Manchester United coming just weeks after a similar beating at Tottenham.

Poor start

QPR have only taken three points from a maximum twelve available since the start of the season, their only win coming against Sunderland. On that occasion they only narrowly beat the Black Cats 1-0 thanks to a Charlie Austin goal.

Redknapp's side have already conceded nine goals in four Premier League games and the can't seem to catch a break as new signing Sandro walked off injured at Old Trafford.

The Brazilian joined QPR from Tottenham this summer on transfer deadline day in a deal worth around £10 million, but may be out for a little while as he is obviously still struggling.

Sandro was supposed to bring some strength defensively and provide fresh creativity in midfield but if he is out injured for few weeks - as he often was at Tottenham - QPR may slip into the relegation zone.

Some potential

On the other hand, the unexperienced Austin looks a potential star and could play an important role in QPR's fight to stay in the Premier League. Rangers really need some immediate efficiency up front as they currently stand 16th with three measly points.

Pace upfront and stability at the back is needed, although the likes of Rio Ferdinand and Steven Caulker should be good enough to provide the latter.

The loss of Loic Remy to Chelsea has surely weakened QPR's creativity and a replacement of the same quality is a priority for the club in the January transfer window, especially if their form does not improve.

QPR face Stoke City at Lotus Road on Saturday and some will expect a big reaction from the team to grab the three points.
