Manchester City v Queens Park Rangers Preview, Premiership, Sunday 10th May 2015

Manchester City have failed in their attempt to defend the Premiership Title and that must be a huge disappointment to both the players and fans as with a squad that is worth a truck load of gold bars it does seem that the blame has to lie with manager Manuel Pellegrini and it will be interesting to see if he still has a job come the second week of August.

Queens Park Rangers are starting relegation in the face and it does seem to have gone all wrong since the departure of manager Harry Redknapp due to medical reason’s and although there certainly is still plenty of fight left in the players from what we have seen in recent weeks, I would be extremely surprised to see them get anything from this game as I feel Manchester City will want to finish the season strongly and win all three of their remaining games.

Manchester City Team News:

Samir Nasri remains unavailable and is out for the rest of the season with a groin problem, but both Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure are expected to return back into the starting lineup having been absent due to respective injury problems. Sergio Aguero will be hoping to get his name on the score-sheet again in his bid for the Premiership top goalscorer award and he will receive support in behind from the likes of Navas and Silva.

Queens Park Rangers Team News:

The visitors will be without Steven Caulker, Clint Hill, Mauricio Isla, Eduardo Vargas and Alejandro Faurlin are all unavailable due to respective injury problems. Rio Ferdinand is also missing due to compasionate leave and Bobby Zamora is rated as only 50-50 to play.

Manchester City v Queens Park Rangers Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Manchester City will definitely want to finish the season on a high note after failing to defend their Premiership title and with Vincent Kompany and Yaya Toure both looking likely to feature in this game after being out with injury recently, I do expect the hosts to win this game in very comfortable fashion.

Sergio Aguero took his season’s tally to 22 goals having scored the only goal of the game in the 1-0 victory away to Tottenham Hotspur last weekend and he does look likely to add to that in this game, especially up against a very weakened Queens Park Rangers defence.

Queens Park Rangers will be desperate to try and get at least something from this game as every point is vital if they are to some how climb out of the bottom three, but unfortunately I can’t see it happening on Sunday afternoon as with the amount of injuries they have and City having back two of their most influential players, I can only see a home win here.

The average goals per game statistics are expecting this match to contain at least two goals and with the form of Sergio Aguero this season, I do believe this could be three or four, so we should be in for plenty of entertainment in this match.

My Banker Prediction is going to be for Sergio Aguero to Score 2 or More Goals as he will definitely see this game as a real chance to add to his 22 goals this season.

My Saver is going to be for Both Teams to Score & Manchester City to Win as with a player like Charlie Austin in your team who is having an excellent season in front of goal, he does look Queens Park Rangers only hope of keeping this scoreline a respectable one.
