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.
