Man Utd v QPR Odds: Reds a short price to pile the pressure on Hughes

QPR manager Mark Hughes was hoping one of his former clubs could do him a huge favour on Saturday afternoon but he has been sacked even before he got to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United. The former Red Devils striker has been shown the door by QPR, who remain rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table after failing to win a since league match so far this term.

The bookies are in no doubt about the size of the task facing QPR though as they go in as 12/1 underdogs in the match odds with Ladbrokes, who go 11/2 that they can nick a draw. United start as 1/5 odds on favourites as Sir Alex Ferguson looks to enhance his team's title ambitions, while interim QPR boss Mark Bowen faces an unenviable opening match.

United are second in the table currently, despite a shock 1-0 defeat to Norwich last weekend, and they will be looking to get back to winning ways. A second string team has since lost 1-0 to Galatasary in the Champions League but the big guns are expected to return at Old Trafford on Saturday and Wayne Rooney will be relishing the opportunity to play QPR.

Rooney opened the scoring in both of the Man Utd v QPR fixtures last season and he is 10/3 to score first again this weekend. The Reds have made a habit of conceding first and coming from behind this season though and they have now conceded the first goal in each of their last four outings, with Ladbrokes going 4/1 for QPR to score first on Saturday.

QPR can at least get on the scoresheet on Saturday as United remain defensively suspect after failing to keep a clean sheet in any of their last nine outings in all competitions. Ladbrokes bookmakers go 11/10 for both teams to score and 7/4 for both teams to score and Man United to win combined, which could be worth a look as United have won 10 and lost none of their last 13 meetings with QPR.

Rangers go into the game on the back of an 11-match winless run in all competitions and the only win they have earned all season came in the Capital One Cup against Walsall. They find themselves five points adrift of safety at the bottom of the league and Harry Redknapp will face a tall task to turn things around when he takes over.

They fell to an embarrassing 3-1 home defeat to Southampton last weekend and the complete lack of desire shown by the team doesn't bode well. They were utterly woeful and it is no surprise to see that Man United are 11/10 to win with a handicap of -2 goals. United go into the game having won 12 and lost only one of their last 14 Premier League home games, while QPR have taken only three points from a possible 57 in away games in the top-flight.
