Injuries & suspensions
Tottenham: Kyle Walker - Out; Vlad Chiriches - Doubtful; Kyle Naughton - Suspended
QPR: Eduardo Vargas - Work Permit
During QPR's recent two year spell in the Premier League, they managed to record an ok record when playing against Tottenham, winning once, losing twice and drawing the other game.
Taking that into account, QPR will feel as though they have a really chance of coming away with something against their London rivals. The Hoops were unfortunate not to get a share of the spoils at home to Hull last week, likewise, Tottenham were fortunate to win their opening fixture against West Ham last week.
With Tottenham playing midweek and struggling to put away modest opponents, the onus is on QPR to upset their London rivals.
Looking at both teams, Tottenham have the better players, but it has been a while since they were a cohesive unit. Last week the entire frontline failed to click and were bailed out by a goal by Eric Dier.
Eyes will be on the likes of Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen, Aaron Lennon and Emmanuel Adebayor to step up this time around. With QPR's defence looking porous, especially Richard Dunne, the aforementioned quadruple have the pace to exploit any spaces in behind.
If Eriksen plays on the right side of the attacking midfield, he will be able to get at Dunne more often than not and a goal could come from that side.
Where QPR do have an advantage is in the centre of midfield. Bentaleb and Capoue aren't the best at bringing the ball out of midfield and creating opportunities. With QPR's enthusiastic trio (Joey Barton, Leroy Fer and Jordon Mutch), Tottenham may soon find themselves outnumbered, especially as the attacking midfield trio of Tottenham's are unlikely to help out defensively.
However, with neither of QPR's midfielders being creative, Loic Remy and Charlie Austin might find themselves cut adrift.
Tottenham 1-0 QPR
*Eriksen to assist
*Emmanuel Adebayor to score
*Danny Simpson to record the worst pass accuracy
