All eyes will be on Harry Redknapp today as the man takes charge at Queens Park Rangers. This is Redknapp’s seventh managerial job. And he’ll be hoping that the lucky number seven pays off today with their tricky away match against Sunderland.
In some ways, Redknapp can’t lose today. QPR has been so dreadful this season that they can’t sink any lower than where they are. And while Redknapp has rescued teams from relegation before, he can only do as well as he can with the players at his disposal.
For Sunderland, meanwhile, it’ll be question of which team shows up. The one that beat Fulham at Craven Cottage. Or the one who got thrashed by West Bromwich Albion at the Stadium of Light.
In the other match of the day, Aston Villa plays Reading in a match that could end up being a relegation battle, or not. It’ll be a good opportunity for both sides to take the pressure of them. Both teams have been showing some better form of late. To be honest, both Villa and Reading are better than what their league positions hint at. This could end up being a very open and exciting match to watch.
If you live in the United States, both games will be shown live. Check out the Premier League TV and Internet guide to find out where to watch the games.
