Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers could make a couple of changes from the side that beat Fulham 3-1 at Craven Cottage on Sunday, with Jose Enrique replacing Andre Wisdom and Fabio Borini could be handed a start after impressing with two substitute appearances lately.

Jamie Carragher starts his last game as a professional footballer and is expected to be partnered by Sebastian Coates at the heart of the Liverpool defense with Martin Skrtel (illness) unlikely to feature.

As for Harry Redknapp's QPR side, Jose Boswinga could have played his last game for the club after being hauled off at halftime of their 2-1 defeat at home to Newcastle last time out, Fabio is expected to replace the Portuguese right back.

Star striker Loic Remy returned to training on Friday following allegations of rape, and is available for selection, while Christopher Samba could return from a knee injury that has forced him to the Rs last three games as Julio Cesar (back) is expected to remain out.


  • Jamie Carragher (pictured right) ends his Liverpool career having played, to date, 737 games for the club, scoring five goals. 

  • The Reds icon has the unfortunate record of scoring more own goals than goals however, having sent eight in his own net.

  • Liverpool has kept a clean sheet in 10 of its last 15 Premier League home matches.

  • Brendan Rodgers' side has won more top-flight games without Luis Suarez (58%) than with him (39%).

  • QPR has only managed to score 17 goals on the road this term, however that is more than the 13 notched at Loftus Road.

  • Since winning two games back-to-back in early March, Harry Redknapp's side have failed to win in eight, drawing two and losing six.
