It's sum season - goals galore for City
QPR and Manchester City can both claim to be the richest club in the world but City are definitely the strongest on paper. City's bench could walk into QPR's first team whilst the likes of Helguson and Taarabt are not fit for the Premier League.
QPR gave Tottenham far too much respect last weekend and there could have been a cricket score at half-time. For this Saturday's live afternoon game, a home win is 7/1, the draw is 7/1 and a City away win is 2/5.
QPR are not that strong at home and the best punt has to be City -1 at 19/20. For QPR, they will be delighted with the three points they won at home recently to Chelsea but they were outplayed by nine men.
The R's have only won one of their last nine games at Loftus Road in all competitions, they will need to improve if they are to secure Premier League survival.
They are now up against one of the most inform sides in Europe, they are stronger than the Blues here two weeks ago and they know how to take their chances. City have netted thirty-six goals after ten games and Man City -4 goals could be a good outside bet at 14/1.
City went to Burnley in the Premier League in early 2010 and they were 5-0 up at half-time. Why can it not happen again? Aguero and Balotelli will be up against a QPR defence consisting of Ferdinand, Hall, Traore and Young. None of those players would make my 'Championship Xl'. It could be goals galore at Loftus Road and Paddy Kenny may not deserve his post match pint.
Man City are 7/5 to win to nil, this looks a cracking price, City have only conceded eight goals in the league this season. They will have no trouble coping with a QPR attack that lacks imagination at this level. Taarabt is QPR's Zidane but he is capable of losing his head and he is not always up for the fight.
The Match Winner is Man City to find the net in the first fifteen minutes at 3/1, they may have bagged a few by then but the 7/5 to win to nil looks better value.
Shaun Wright-Phillips was at City last season and he wasn't ousted by Mancini, he was just informed that he would not have as much playing time this season. He is a confidence player and he will probably thrive on being a big fish in a small pond.
He is 14/1 to upset the apple and bag the first goal in-front of the home fans. If you like an upset and fancy taking on City, you can back QPR or the draw at 15/8.
City may not inspire fondness from neutrals but the facts and stats do not lie, this City team went to Spain away in midweek and won with ease, they also put six goals past their city rivals United in the league.
So on that note, Paddy Kenney, Luke Young, Anton Ferdinand, Fitz Hall and Armand Traore, I really do wish you the best of luck on Saturday afternoon, you are about to be punished!
