Loic Remy: Analysis of the Striker's QPR Debut

On Wednesday, January 16, Loic Remy completed his move from Marseille to Queens Park Rangers after a lengthy talk with chairman Tony Fernandes and a game of FIFA (via QPR Official).

Despite looking set to join Newcastle United, it was apparently the relegation battle—rather than money—that attracted the Frenchman to West London over the North East (via The Independent):

QPR were very open, they wanted me and it's great to be here. It's true that I hesitated between Newcastle and QPR. I went to meet the staff at Newcastle and there came a time to make a decision and I made that decision based on two factors. Firstly I already knew the coach Harry Redknapp and secondly, I'm very excited by the project QPR have here for the future.

But whatever his motivation for joining the club, his EPL career is off to a flyer.

He scored in his Premier League debut—the first QPR player to do so since Danny Dichio in 1994 (via a tweet from Infostrada Sports). And before the cries of "Djibril Cisse" ring out, he had already scored in the Premier League prior to playing for QPR.

It was Cisse's first goal for the club that kick-started Rangers' revival last year, and QPR fans will be hoping that Remy will have the same impact on the team this season.

Remy has begun in fine fashion, but how exactly did his game go against West Ham United?

Here is a breakdown of his first 90 minutes in a blue-and-white hooped shirt.
