The QPR manager Mark Hughes has said that his club is now facing a defensive crisis and he hopes that some of his defenders get well soon. After spending a lot of money over the summer, QPR have not been able to deliver the results so far this campaign. As a result, the odds for Mark Hughes becoming the next manager to get the sack in the Premier league has been shortened severely. QPR will be going into the London Derby against West Ham knowing that they have collected just one point from the last five matches in the Premier league.
This means that they are currently bottom of the Premier league with just two points on the board. The Southampton manager Nigel Adkins was the favourite to get the first sack this season, but the defeat against Tottenham last weekend has increased the pressure on Mark Hughes. Ahead of the match will West Ham, the former Blackburn and Manchester city manager has said that he is not extremely confident about the prospect of keeping a clean sheet against West Ham because he is facing a defensive crisis at the moment. Players like Fabio Da Silva and many others are currently unavailable from the first team.
“I think for the most part our performances have been fine up to a point. Obviously we need to see games out. We have selection problems at the moment in a key area of the field in defence. We have had too much of a turnover [with] selection and personnel changes, that doesn’t lend to having continuity of performance.We’ve created some decent football in the initial period but it was always going to take time,” said the QPR manager Mark Hughes ahead of the match with West Ham on Monday night.
