Burnley supporters might have been anxious that they wouldn’t be the only team participating at Loftus Road on Sunday who were looking for a new manager when Belgium fired Roberto Martinez following their World Cup defeat.
Vincent Kompany, though, doesn’t seem to be interested in leaving Turf Moor for his national squad and is instead putting his full effort into helping the Clarets gain promotion.
Burnley needed to respond in the derby against Blackburn Rovers after his team’s defeat at Sheffield United, as their fierce rivals had the chance to surpass them in the standings.
Instead, Burnley came back in the second half and scored three goals in 26 minutes to finish the World Cup break three points ahead of Sheffield United.
Despite that victory, Kompany might have appreciated the reset because his team had recently displayed weaknesses. Now, everyone will be watching to see if they can pick up where they left off.
This is QPR’s first game following the departure of Michael Beale, who took the second chance to leave the organization after only a few months in charge.
The draw of Steven Gerrard’s club, the Scottish powerhouse Rangers, proved to be too much, and the Hoops are now in a position where they need a permanent successor for the manager as soon as possible.
The team’s future success may be aided by its youthfulness and lack of distractions, as QPR has only managed four points in six games since Wolverhampton Wanderers’ real interest first surfaced in them in October.
Caretaker manager Paul Hall will be hoping that his players feel free to produce against the leaders after four defeats in five games and only one goal for QPR.
Burnley are the overwhelming favorites to win at Loftus Road based on their respective performances before the World Cup break. However, we believe that QPR will be motivated to win after losing their head coach, thus we expect a close battle for the victory.
