Redknapp aims to boost QPR survival bid and get title race back on track


Harry Redknapp is aiming to cause an upset against Manchester United on Saturday.

Having led Tottenham Hotspur to fourth spot in the Premier League last season, Redknapp faces an altogether different challenge this time round after being installed as Queens Park Rangers manager in November.

The Loftus Road club are currently rock bottom of the top-flight ladder and seven points from safety, with United next up in the capital this weekend. And although Sir Alex Ferguson’s side are currently 12 points clear of neighbours City in the race for the title, Redknapp believes his team can cause an upset.

"You can't predict results," he told the Fulham Chronicle. "We're playing Chelsea away on the back of being smashed to pieces by Liverpool. What's the score going to be you might ask? 3-0, and 4-0 to them? I was surprised as you were [QPR won 1-0].

"We then play Tottenham at home who've beaten everybody away and have scored in all away games - and they don't score against us [the match ended 0-0].  Against Manchester City who are champions, we get another great point [0-0].  So we're just as capable of getting something against Man United as anyone else."
