New Signings Can Rejuvenate United Against QPR
Man Utd To Beat QPR 2-0
Manchester United and their raft of new signings take on Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon and football legend Matt Le Tissier has betting tips for the match.
The Sky Sports 1 cameras will be focused on the day’s only Premier League encounter at Old Trafford, which kicks off at 4pm. After a slow start to the season, United fans will have renewed optimism following a quite spectacular transfer deadline day which culminated in the capture of Radamel Falcao, considered to be one of the most lethal strikers in Europe.
It’s no secret that Louis Van Gaal hasn’t had the personnel to fit his preferred tactics, but the new signings combined with Marcos Rojo finally being granted a work permit will solidify the side and the Dutch coach now has the luxury of deciding which world class players to select and which ones to leave on the bench.
QPR haven’t had the best of results since returning to the top flight on the back of their Play-Off final victory. Harry Redknapp’s side lost to Hull and were played off the park by Tottenham, but did recover to edge Sunderland 1-0 before the international break.
Matt Le Tissier Tips: “This must surely be the weekend that things finally start to click under Louis van Gaal. United spent a shedload during the window, with more marquee arrivals than a village fete.
They’re 3/10 with Paddy Power to beat a QPR side that succumbed to a 4-0 loss at Tottenham before the break. For increased profits, I’d plump for a 2-0 correct score at 11/2 with bet365.”
Radamel Falcao could make his debut on Sunday afternoon, potentially alongside Wayne Rooney with rumours of an ankle injury for Robin Van Persie. If RVP makes it however, Rooney could operate in the hole at the expense of Juan Mata. There’s heavy competition for starting berths in midfield with Angel Di Maria and Daley Blind expected to be preferred ahead of Darren Fletcher, while Marcos Rojo will add some much needed stability at the back in place of the injured Phil Jones.
QPR can now field Eduardo Vargas after his work permit has gone through, but he may have to settle for a place on the bench. Harry Redknapp reverted to 4 at the back in the win over Sunderland last time out and could stick with a 4-4-1-1 formation once again, with Charlie Austin leading the line ahead of Leroy Fer.
