QPR will be hoping they can bring the same form that saw them over turn Spurs last weekend and try and nick three points away at Stamford bridge this weekend.
Joey Barton has racked up more miles than any other QPR player this season, he’s covered 155.3 miles. His nearest rival is Shaun Derry who has covered 138.2 miles so far this season.
Joey has, unsurprisingly, been the at the top of the individual distance covered in QPR’s previous two games.
Bobby Zamora climbed one place to 76th in the overall EA SPORTS Player Performance Index. He is also the highest ranked QPR player.
Mark Hughes must currently have mixed emotions towards Taarabt after last weekend’s performance at Spurs.
Taarabt was the difference in the 24th minute and secured QPR all three points for Spurs, with his second goal of the season. Coming from 76 shots in total this season.
Taarabt however, was later sent off after being awarded two yellow cards. QPR have picked up eight red cards this season, more than any other Premier League club.
After a clash of epic proportions at the Nou Camp on Tuesday night Di Matteo’s side will have to either win the Champions League or try and save fourth place in the Premier League. Torres scored a very important goal on Tuesday night, securing Chelsea’s spot in the final.
In the Premier League this season Torres has had 52 shots in front of goal. 55.7% of those shots have been on target.
Torres however has had a torrid time putting the ball in the back of the net, of his 23 shots which have been on target he converted just three, which equates to a success rate of 13% this season.
Ashley Cole has been been solid for Chelsea in the Premier League this season. He’s won 72.5% of all tackles he attempted.
The left back has been powering up and down the line for Chelsea all season and has covered 181.7 miles in the process, which is also the highest in the Chelsea squad.
QPR’s form has been pretty black and white. They win most of their home games and lose most of their away ones. Breaking that cycle at Stamford Bridge today seems too big an ask to me.
Chelsea beat Barcelona during the week just in case you didn’t hear about it and they will be running out with their tails up.
