Liverpool will play host to English Premier League bottom feeder Queens Park Rangers on Sunday in the two teams' season finale at Anfield.

Brendan Rodgers' Reds haven't lost since a mid-March away defeat at Southampton, while Harry Redknapp's struggling Hoops are facing relegation and are winless in their last eight Premier League outings.

Neither side has much to gain on Sunday but will be playing for pride, as Liverpool is locked into seventh place in the league table and QPR has been assured relegation next season, currently sitting in last place in the table with just 25 points. 

With the stage set for Sunday's finale, here we'll get you ready with everything you need to know.

Liverpool Player to Watch: Daniel Sturridge

The Reds' second-leading goal scorer this season, Daniel Sturridge will be the player to watch at the top of Liverpool's lineup on Sunday.

Possessing phenomenal pace and skill on the ball, the 23-year-old forward is capable of scoring himself or finding a teammate for a goal on any given play. Sturridge recorded an impressive hat-trick in his most recent appearance last week in a win over Fulham.

With 11 goals in 15 appearances for the Liverpool this season, Sturridge has proven to be Rodgers' most efficient weapon since joining the club in January.

 

 

Queens Park Rangers Player to Watch: Bobby Zamora

Veteran striker Bobby Zamora will need to deliver in a big way for QPR on the road Sunday if his side is going to end a disastrous season on a high note.

Zamora hasn't scored since an away loss at Swansea back in February, but seeing as QPR ranks last in the Premier League in goals scored this season (just 30 through 37 matches), he'll need to find the back of the net at least once if the Hoops are going to manufacture an upset.

Leading goal scorer Loic Remy will be available for Sunday's match, but it remains to be seen whether he will see the pitch at all.

If Remy doesn't play, the scoring burden will fall squarely on the shoulders of the 32-year-old Zamora.

 

 

Prediction

Liverpool blanked QPR the last time the two teams met at Loftus Road back in late December, winning 3-0 on the strength of two early goals from Luis Suarez.

Given where both teams stand coming into this weekend's Premier League finale at Anfield, a similar result wouldn't be at all shocking. After all, the Reds have won eight of 18 home matches in league play thus far, while QPR have been successful in picking up wins in just two away league matches all year long.

This quote from Redknapp says it all: 

With relegation certain for the Hoops this weekend, expect them to end the season the same way they began, with a shutout defeat.

Liverpool 2, QPR 0
