QPR v Man City: Another City rout

City have scored at least two goals in every league game

This Saturday’s tea-time kick-off sees a clash of the Premier League’s wealthy. The home side, QPR, who have recently been taken over by Air Asia owner Tony Fernandes, come up against Manchester City, a side who have spent between 300 and 400 million pounds on a cosmopolitan team finally playing up to their extraordinary potential.

Coming into the match, there is no hotter team in world football, apart from maybe Barcelona, than the team from Eastlands. They have only dropped two points all season – in a 2-2 draw with QPR’s west London neighbours Fulham in September. More recently, City administered that now famous drubbing at Old Trafford and comfortable back-to-back wins against Villarreal in the Champions league, and against Wolves in the league and the Carling Cup.

As for Rangers, it has been an up and down season for them in the return to the top flight. Their three wins have come with the aid of a clean sheet, including a fascinating win against nine-man Chelsea in their last home game. For all of their good play in midfield, with Joey Barton and Shaun Wright-Phillips settling down into manager Neil Warnock’s system, it seems apparent that they struggle mightily for goals from their forward men. Jay Bothroyd may have an England cap to his name, but he hasn’t made the kind of impact that people were expecting after his free-agent signing from Cardiff.

Worryingly for the home side, City have scored at least two goals in every league game so far this season, and that is without their main talisman from last year Carlos Tevez.

With boss Roberto Mancini giving the attacking talent at his disposal a license rarely seen last season, it seems that Paddy Kenny is going to be in for a long evening with the likes of Balotelli, Dzeko, Silva and Aguero taking aim on his goal.
