HUGHES WANTS MORE

QPR manager Mark Hughes has said that he is looking forward to much better performances in the future from former Chelsea winger Shaun Wright-Phillips.

The former Chelsea and Manchester City winger arrived from Manchester City in the summer for around £ 3 million. However, Neil Warnock has not been able to get the best out of the former England winger largely because of the position he was used.

Following the sacking of Neil Warnock, QPR appointed former Manchester City manager Mark Hughes. Mark Hughes has now said that QPR fans can now see the best of Shaun Wright-Phillips due to the fact that he will be played in his favourite position.

Shaun Wright-Phillips has failed to score in 22 appearances for QPR this season. Mark Hughes has said that one of his biggest tasks at QPR is to bring out the best in Shaun Wright-Phillips. At one point SWP was a certainty to make the England team (and the best Euro 2012 betting had him as odds-on to make the squad) but his performances since the turn of the year have seen him start to slip from grace.

In order to do that, Shaun Wright-Phillips will be used in his favourite position according to Mark Hughes. Mark Hughes is credited with bringing out the best in Shaun Wright-Phillips during his time at Manchester City. However, the current Manchester city manager Roberto Mancini has failed to recognise the talent behind Shaun Wright-Phillips.

“I think Shaun’s doing okay. In fairness I probably haven’t been able to play him in his most preferred position, which is wide right. I’ve moved him around, I’ve played him in the middle and I’ve predominantly started him on the left. He’s got enough ability to be able to adapt so I’ve been pleased with that,” said Hughes.

QPR are currently struggling in the bottom end of the table, despite bringing in a number of strong players during the January transfer window. They are currently in the 16th position in the table, with 21 points on the board.

SWP DEVASTATED BY GOAL

QPR winger Shaun Wright Phillips has said that he was left devastated by the way in which he was responsible for Arsenal’s late goal in the match between the two clubs.

QPR managed to restrict Arsenal from scoring in the match between the two clubs at Emirates Stadium recently but Robin van Persie scored the only goal to give Arsenal all three points lae in the game.

It’s only increased the pressure on QPR manager Neil Warnock, who has seen his side go without a win in the last seven matches. His future has become bleak at the Loftus Road.

QPR winger Shaun Wright Phillips, who was signed for just as little as £ 3 million in the summer from Manchester City, has said that he was solely responsible for the goal they conceded, which helped Van Persie overtake Thierry Henry’s record of 34 goals in one calendar year with Arsenal.

Wright Phillips conceded possession too cheaply, which was taken advantage by Arsenal winger Andre Arshavin. The Russian passed the ball to Robin van Persie, who slotted the ball past the advancing goalkeeper. Even though the Dutchman was unable to pass the record set by Alan Shearer back in 1995, the joy of having passed the record set by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

“Shaun Wright-Phillips is devastated, which is harsh of the lad as he had a great game, and could even have won it for us down at the other end. It was a terrible goal for to concede from our point of view, but that’s the fine line between winning and losing at Premier League level. But we came here positively with four forwards and tried to win the game,” QPR manager Neil Warnock said after the match.

According to the latest online Premier League betting, QPR still remain one of the favourites to avoid relegation, but they need to get more points on the board, sooner rather than later.

SWP SAYS QPR CAN WIN

Shaun Wright Phillips has turned the heat on Manchester United by saying that QPR can not only beat Chelsea at the Loftus Road, but they can also beat the Champions as well.

QPR performed exceptionally in their 1-0 win over Chelsea a few months back, but it could be eclipsed with a win over the current Champions. Manchester United head into the match against QPR not in the best of forms, although they have recently beaten Wolverhampton Wanderers 4-1. Still, Shaun Wright Phillips believes that Manchester United are not playing their best football of recent years and they can certainly be beaten at the Loftus Road.

It is very unlikely that Sir Alex Ferguson will be worried too much about the comments by Shaun Wright Phillips given that QPR have achieved only one victory at home all season. It is usually the prerogative for newly promoted teams to perform well at home, but QPR have been the exact opposite. They have been exceptional away from home, but they have struggled at the Loftus Road. The 1-0 win over Chelsea was their first win of the season and it still remains the same. Further, Manchester United will be coming into the match with the knowledge that they can go top of the table – albeit only for a few hours – since Manchester City do not play Arsenal until later on Sunday.

‘It’s a massive game to play in and we are looking forward to it and hopefully we can do the same thing we did to Chelsea and move further up the table again. I think we have done really well against the big clubs and I think we have got to keep doing that on a consistent basis,’ he told Sky Sports News. Heidar Helguson will be fit to face Manchester United.
