QPR v Man Utd preview

Published Feb. 22, 2013 7:15 a.m. ET

Queens Park Rangers striker Loic Remy is a doubt for Saturday's Premier League clash with leaders Manchester United at Loftus Road.

The France forward has been struggling with a groin complaint and, having suffered a setback, will be assessed to see whether he is available at Loftus Road.

Junior Hoilett (hamstring) and Samba Diakite (international duty) are available again, while manager Harry Redknapp is hoping to get more than 45 minutes from Bobby Zamora as the forward manages a long-standing hip injury.

Wayne Rooney is set to miss the trip to basement boys QPR this weekend.


Rooney sat out Monday's FA Cup win over Reading with a sinus problem and although he has now returned to training, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson does not expect the striker to have fully recovered.

Phil Jones (ankle) and Paul Scholes (knee) are also sidelined although Ferguson will still make changes, with Robin van Persie among those likely to be recalled.
