Liverpool play their penultimate game at Anfield of the 2014/15 season with the visit of Queens Park Rangers on Saturday; 3pm kick off UK time. On paper, Q.P.R. have far more to lose than the Reds, with their top flight status very much under threat as they sit four points adrift from safety with four games remaining. In comparison, Liverpool are seven points behind fourth placed Manchester Utd and based on recent performances, have little hope of reeling in the Red Devils for that prized final Champions League spot.
The Hoops have won just two of their last 17 league games – 2-0 at Sunderland and 4-1 at West Brom – and have picked up maximum points on seven occasions. They’ve lost the most games (21), conceded the most goals (59), drawn the fewest games (6 tied with Southampton), lost the most games away from home (13) and conceded the most away goals (36). They’ve kept six clean sheets in the league but only one on their travels (that 2-0 win at Sunderland).
