For all their success on the road over the last couple of months, particularly at Stamford Bridge, Liverpool have struggled at Anfield in recent matches.
Not since a 2-1 win over Wolves on 24th September have they scored more than one goal in a home match, with this attacking deficiency a major factor in the number of points the Reds have dropped on their own ground.
While QPR’s defence has been suspect they have proved more capable in attack, with at least one goal scored in each of their last seven games – including against Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham.
Although Kenny Dalglish’s side remain unbeaten at Anfield this season, five draws mean they have only picked up 11 points from their seven games.
Sunderland, Manchester United, Norwich, Swansea and Manchester City have all taken points off Liverpool on Merseyside by holding the home team to 1-1 or 0-0 draws.
However, the visit of QPR provides the Reds with the ideal opportunity to pick up all three points, with the Hoops boasting an unenviable defensive record away from home.
While Neil Warnock’s team have picked up three wins in four matches on the road, it is also true that they have conceded at least two goals in their last four away trips.
With Liverpool yet to concede more than a single goal in a game at Anfield this season, the Reds therefore look ideally positioned to earn victory.

Indeed, they go into the match as heavy favourites to win in bwin’s 3Way football betting market.
Liverpool success is priced at 3/10, with a draw available at 15/4 and a QPR win at 10/1.
However, while QPR’s defence has been suspect they have proved more capable in attack, with at least one goal scored in each of their last seven games – including against Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham.
With all seven of Liverpool’s opponents at Anfield save Swansea scoring one goal on their visit to Merseyside this season, QPR therefore look good value to score once at odds of 31/20.
Given the Reds would have to score twice in order to overcome this deficit a QPR goal rules out a Liverpool win with under 2.5 goals at odds of 5/2, although it does make a 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 scoreline in favour of the home side a good bet at odds of 3/1.
