Harry Set To Wheel And Deal In January
QPR fell to yet another defeat and are rooted firmly to the bottom of the Premier League, eight points adrift of safety.
With three of their London rivals coming next in the Premier League, William Hill are offering 5/6 that they fail to win any of their next three matches.
Harry Redknapp has reiterated his desire to cut free some of the deadwood at Loftus Road in recent weeks and bring in some of his own players and Britain's biggest bookmakers offer 11/2 that five or more of the QPR starting XI vs Norwich on the 2nd February are January signings. It is 4/1 that four are and 10/1 for none.
"There are obvious deficiencies in QPR's team and it is going to be a case of back to the drawing board for Harry," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "It looks as though he could well throw them straight into the deep end as soon as February comes round."
Nicolas Anelka is fancied to move back to the Premier League and is 9/2 to join QPR in the January transfer window.
Redknapp's rescue mission is not currently going to plan and should they go down, it will remain to be seen whether he stays. As things stand, he is 6/4 to still be at the club on the opening day of next season.
After the thrilling 10 goal epic played out at the Emirates on Saturday, William Hill are betting on how many goals will be scored in this season's highest scoring match. 10 is the favourite at 1/4 while for the current record of eleven to be equalled is 4/1. For 12 or more to be scored in a single game in the remainder of this season, 7/1 is offered.
Manchester United are the 4/7 favourites to score the most Premier League goals this season with Manchester City 10/3 and Arsenal 11/2.
