Our predicted line-up for United’s visit to Loftus Road.
Louis van Gaal will be looking to get his Manchester United side back on track after their 1-0 loss to Southampton last week when they visit relegation strugglers QPR on Saturday.
The Red Devils boss will have a big decision to make over the role of much maligned striker Radamael Falcao who was dropped from the starting XI and the bench in favour of youngster James Wilson.

Manchester United Summer Signing Must Prove His Worth Says Van Gaal
The Colombian’s lack of form and poor displays have led van Gaal to challenge him to prove his worth in the press amid rumours Falcao’s representatives are pushing United to sign him on a free.
However, the Dutch coach’s hand may be forced with Robin van Persie picking up an injury last week against Southampton and definitely out of today’s match and Falcao may have to start.
Here’s our predicted line-up:
GK: David De Gea
Was undone by some sloppy defending in-front of him in United’s previous match and will remain between the sticks against Redknapp’s side despite the fact he now has serious competition for his place with the addition of Victor Valdes on a free transfer.
RCB: Phil Jones
Jones has been one of the stronger faces at the back this season for the Red Devils and will keep his place as van Gaal tries to find balance in defence.
