Post Match Video: Dalglish loss of words on QPR defeat

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish says he and his staff have "no explanation" for how his side allowed QPR to come back to win 3-2 at Loftus Road.

The Reds boss believes his side were "easily deserving" of their 2-0 lead, and he could not see a goal coming against them before Mark Hughes's team scored three times in the final 13 minutes.

Dalglish suggests that the home side may have got the "luck they never got at Bolton", where a QPR goal was not awarded despite the ball clearly crossing the line.

Video Highlights: QPR 3-2 Liverpool

qpr v liverpool A brilliant goal from Sebastian Coates was little consolation as Liverpool surrendered a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 to Queens Park Rangers.

The defender might never forget his first strike in English football, an acrobatic volley to open the scoring at Loftus Road, but after Dirk Kuyt made the score 2-0, the hosts mounted an incredible comeback to boost their chances of Barclays Premier League survival.

Shaun Derry, Djibril Cisse and Jamie Mackie all fired in the final 14 minutes and the Reds left West London feeling robbed.

The Liverpool team included Luis Suarez and Martin Kelly, both of whom had recovered from knocks that forced them from the pitch against Stoke City. They and the rest of the players donned t-shirts during the warm-up with messages of support for Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba as he continues to recover from a cardiac arrest.

The action then commenced and it was Liverpool who seized the initiative, a mistake from Nedum Onuoha allowing Suarez to charge unobstructed towards Paddy Kenny. But for once a player whose unpredictability is perhaps his greatest asset was outwitted, and the goalkeeper saved.

Anton Ferdinand then had to rescue his teammates, who'd been unlocked by a Kelly through ball that presented Stewart Downing with a chance.

Match Preview: QPR v Liverpool

qpr v liverpool The last time this two teams met at Anfield, Liverpool emerged victorious with Luis Suarez scoring the only goal in that match in December 2011. Queens Park Rangers will now host Liverpool at Loftus Road, many betting site are favouring Liverpool to beat QPR and get more Football Betting Tips from Betfair for this match.

Despite changing managers and spending heavily in January in order to secure Premier League survival, Queens Park Rangers find themselves rooted in the relegation zone with just 10 games remaining.

For Mark Hughes' side, the situation is now approaching critical. The London outfit also have the toughest run in, on paper, of any of the sides near the foot of table, with games still to come against Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham, Chelsea, and Manchester City, not to mention an in-form Swansea side.

And things will not be easy for QPR on Wednesday, up against Liverpool.

Liverpool have put their hat-trick of League defeats firmly behind them, but it won’t be far from typical if they were to slip up at Loftus road. After convincingly defeating Everton in the League through a Steven Gerrard hat-trick, Liverpool did well to grind out a narrow win against Stoke City in the FA Cup.

Luis Suarez has recently shown his eagerness to sign a new contract, which has come as a major boost for the club at a time when speculations around his transfer had grown enough to unsettle everyone at the club. However, Dirk Kuyt admits he may be forced to leave if he isn’t offered more first team opportunities; whether Dalglish reacts to that is to be seen.

Team news

Adel Taarabt is back in contention for QPR.

Playmaker Taarabt missed Rangers' controversial defeat at Bolton 10 days ago with a hamstring strain but has had plenty of time to recover.

Injury-plagued striker DJ Campbell is back in training and could return early next month, as could top scorer Heidar Helguson (groin).

Defender Glen Johnson and forward Craig Bellamy are both likely to miss out for Liverpool.

The former has not played since the Carling Cup final victory over Cardiff last month while Bellamy has sat out the last two matches.

Centre-back Daniel Agger is still recovering from a broken rib.

QPR Probable Line-up: Kenny, Onuoha, Ferdinand, Hill, Traore, Barton (c), Derry, Diakite, Wright-Phillips, Zamora, Cisse

Liverpool Probable Line-up: Reina, Kelly, Carragher, Skrtel, Enrique, Henderson, Spearing, Gerrard, Downing, Carroll, Suarez

Liverpool 1-0 QPR Match Report

With Liverpool’s unbeaten run ending last Monday at Fulham they were hoping to bounce back quickly in their return to Anfield. But Liverpool have not found it easy at Anfield this season, having drawn five matches and especially struggling to beat newly promoted teams, with draws against Norwich and Swansea already this season. QPR have started pretty well this season and Liverpool would have to be at their best to overcome Neil Warnock’s side.

THE TEAM

Dalglish brought Maxi and Kuyt back into the team for this match. With Jay Spearing suspended and Lucas out for the season, Jordan Henderson was drafted into the middle of midfield. Andy Carroll was once again relegated to the bench alongside Jamie Carragher who is struggling to win his place back because of the outstanding Skrtel and Agger.

THE MATCH

Liverpool started the match brightly with 3 corners inside the first 3 minutes but the first real chance came when Downing crossed to Suarez but his header was tame.

Then Kuyt and Suarez combined before Suarez shot inches wide. Liverpool were dominating and QPR were struggling to cope. Maxi then set up Suarez but he shot against the hoardings. Suarez was causing all sorts of bother in the QPR defence and he almost turned provider with a dangerous cross after wriggling free of his marker.

Then Kuyt sent Maxi clear but he was thwarted by a great save from Cerny. QPR had to wait until the 41st minute for their first attempt on goal from Wright-Phillips but it ballooned into the Kop.

Liverpool responded with Downing sending Suarez clear but his dinked effort was saved by Cerny who was proving hard to beat. Liverpool went in at the half wondering how they had not scored with all their dominance of the first half.

But Liverpool finally broke the deadlock in the 47th minute when Adam crossed from the left to find the unmarked Suarez who headed past Cerny to the delight of the Kop. Liverpool went in search of the killer second goal with Kuyt going close with a couple of efforts and Maxi once again being denied by another brilliant Cerny save.

Liverpool continued to create chances but between bad finishing and great goalkeeping they could not find the second goal and as the game entered the latter stages QPR started to believe they had a chance of scraping something from a match that they had been outplayed in. The visitors started to make Liverpool defend for the first time and had a penalty appeal waved away when Skrtel made a challenge in the box.

Liverpool had to defend a few corners in the latter stages but they almost doubled their lead in the final seconds when Bellamy’s cross was diverted of the bar by Wright-Phillips. There was great relief around Anfield at the final whistle.

SUMMARY

Great to see Maxi and Kuyt start and Henderson play in his favoured position. Liverpool totally dominate the match, but once again not converting the chances created into goals, which is becoming a common theme. Thankfully we got the goal that was enough to win the match, where in previous games at home we have too often failed to net a winner. Hopefully this win will get another run going. We are playing some tremendous stuff right now and it is far more enjoyable to watch than in previous years.

Man Of The Match – Suarez- unplayable at times, a constant threat, terrorised the QPR defence and thoroughly deserved his goal.

Liverpool 1-0 QPR: Suarez on the mark

Luis Suarez clinched the points as Liverpool returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over QPR.

The striker headed his eighth goal of the campaign during a game which the home side dominated.

The A-team theme blared before kick-off and the plan eventually came together for Kenny Dalglish and co despite a wasteful first half.

For his part, skipper Pepe Reina was a virtual spectator.

Dalglish switched Jordan Henderson to a central position in the absence of the suspended Jay Spearing and injured Lucas Leiva.

The Reds applied the early pressure, winning three corners inside the first three minutes.

The first opening arrived on 10 minutes, Stewart Downing crossing from the right towards an unmarked Suarez. The Uruguayan's limp header did not trouble the goalkeeper.

Shortly after that Suarez and Dirk Kuyt exchanged possession in the box before the former daggered a shot within inches from a ludicrous angle.

Soon it would be a hat-trick of chances gone when Maxi rolled the ball into Suarez's path and watched his fellow South American skew against the Anfield Road hoardings.

Some of Liverpool's football was scrumptious, but the scoreline remained blank.

Transfer deadline: Two more to join Liverpool and four players leaving

David N’gog should complete his protracted £4million move to Bolton Wanderers from Liverpool FC today.

David Ngog The 22-year-old Frenchman has been a long-time target of Trotters boss Owen Coyle, who is desperate to add a striker to his ranks before tomorrow's transfer deadline.

A fee for the former Paris St. Germain forward has been agreed in principle between the two clubs, and Bolton are prepared to match N’gog's Anfield salary, having already missed out on number one target Daniel Sturridge this summer.

N’gog is now expected to travel to the Reebok Stadium to discuss personal terms and undergo a medical, and a deal should be announced before the closure of the transfer window tomorrow evening.

N’gog has made 94 appearances since arriving at Anfield in 2008, scoring 19 goals, but has found himself surplus to requirements at Anfield this season, following Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish's close-season recruitment drive.

He was left out of the squad for last week's Carling Cup tie at Exeter City, and was again absent as the Reds swept aside his prospective new employers on Saturday evening to briefly top the Premier League table.

His imminent departure will, however, leave Dalglish's squad short of attacking depth. He has Andy Carroll, Luis Suarez and Dirk Kuyt as his forward options, but would ideally like to add another before tomorrow's deadline.

Manchester City misfit Craig Bellamy has been strongly linked, and would be receptive to a return to Anfield, but a move for the Welshman hinges on whether City are willing to release the 32-year-old on a free transfer, and to a potential Premier League rival.

Dalglish, meanwhile, has been busy lowering the Reds' wage bill in recent weeks, following more than £110m worth of investment in his squad since January.

Sotirios Kyrgiakos, Nabil El-Zhar and Emiliano Insua have all been sold, while Alberto Aquilani has joined AC Milan on loan with view to a permanent move. Both Joe Cole and Philipp Degen could follow them, if Queens Park Rangers follow up their initial interest in the pair.

Liverpool signing Sebastian Coates is due to have his work permit hearing today, and his current club Nacional have flown a delegation over to help with the case.

Also set for the Anfield exit door is midfielder Christian Poulsen, with Spanish side Espanyol keen to end the Dane's miserable year on Merseyside.

Poulsen joined the Reds from Juventus for £4.5million last summer, but has failed to make an impact, and made just 12 league appearances last season.

He was left out of Denmark's squad for their forthcoming Euro 2012 qualifier with Norway this week, with manager Morten Olsen claiming he was suffering from stress due to his uncertain club future.

Poulsen himself would welcome a return to former club FC Copenhagen, but the Danes are unlikely to meet his wage demands, and Espanyol hope to tie up a deal for the 32-year-old in the next 48 hours.

The Hoops interested in Liverpool fullback

Skysports.com understands Queens Park Rangers have made an enquiry regarding Liverpool's Philipp Degen.

The Switzerland international appears to be surplus to requirements at Anfield after struggling to make an impression during his time at Liverpool.

Philipp Degen He was beset by injury troubles in his first season at the club after arriving from Borussia Dortmund in 2008 and spent last season back on loan in the Bundesliga with Stuttgart.

With Reds boss Kenny Dalglish having the likes of Glen Johnson, Martin Kelly and youngster John Flanagan to choose from at right-back, Degen could be on the move before the transfer window closes.

Premier League new boys QPR remain in the market for new signings as manager Neil Warnock tries to build a squad capable of surviving in the top flight.

Warnock started the new campaign with Kieron Dyer at right-back, but the former England international lasted just a few minutes of Saturday's 4-0 defeat by Bolton Wanderers before being stretchered off.

Bradley Orr replaced Dyer at Loftus Road, while Warnock also currently has issues at left-back after Clint Hill was sent off late on in the defeat by Bolton.

Degen has made a total of 13 appearances during his Liverpool career and his last outing for the Reds was in the Europa League against Atletico Madrid in April 2010.

Rumour Mill: Liverpool gearing up for a defender swoop

Kenny Dalglish Kenny Dalglish is working hard to shipped out the deadwoods at Anfield to refill his transfer kitty for at least one more new player before the new season kick-off.

Liverpool FC are weighting their option on moving Joe Cole to QPR and are keen to reduce their wage load. Milan Jovanovic, who are certain to be moving to the Belgian club after Liverpool agreed terms with Anderlecht on Tuesday evening.

A woeful pre-season defensive display from Liverpool FC which saw them leaking three goals each against Guangdong FC, Malaysia XI, Hull City, Galatasaray and Valerenga. With Martin Skrtel out on a calf injury, the 26-year-old played every minute of the Merseyside club's Premier League campaign last season, but has suffered with the injury during pre-season.

Dalglish would like to sign a new centre-back as cover for his team and Scott Dann and Ryan Shawcross names has been recently linked with a move to Anfield.

Elsewhere, reports has indicated Hull City manager Nigel Peearson are interested in signing Liverpool centre-back Daniel Ayala. The Tigers have made six signings already this summer but are still keen to add the 20-year-old to their ranks.

Dalglish is believed to rate Ayala in the £1million bracket but it is not known whether Hull agree with that valuation.

Now signing a new centre-back would be the top priority for Dalglish as Jamie Carragher and Sotirios Kyrgiakos are over 30-years-old. While Daniel Agger are injury prone and only left Academy graduate Andre Wisdom who recently signed an extension contract as cover plus Danny Wilson available for selection. If the Hull’s story are to be true, then Liverpool are freeing up the centre-back slot for a new player soon.

Liverpool midfielder set for Loftus Road

Liverpool manager, Kenny Dalglish is understood to be interested in bolstering the defensive line with a new centre-back and a left-back before the new season kick-off in 10 days.

With Milan Jovanovic shipped out to Belgian outfit, Anderlecht on free transfer and the Serbian forward has free up Liverpool FC bulging wage bill.

Joe Cole According from source close to the club, another midfielder, Joe Cole looks set to return to West London to join Queens Park Rangers on loan for the 2011/12 season.

The Barclays Premier League new boys are hoping to strike a deal with the Reds over the England midfielder, who has failed to impress since joining from Chelsea last summer. It is understood Cole is currently in talks with the London club.

Liverpool are keen to reduce their wage load to finance further summer signings, and shifting Cole would free up around £90,000 per week to put towards Kenny Dalglish’s transfer kitty. However, there are few clubs who could afford such sums meaning John W. Henry may have to fork out some form of compensation or contribution in order to allow the player to move on.
