Two minutes of stoppage time left in this game.

90
Four minutes of injury time have been awarded.

82
It is safe to say now that QPR have lost this game. Swansea have been far superior in the second half and are reaping the dividends.

81
GOAL! Swansea City go 5-0 up in the latter stages of the match, as Scott Sinclair finds the target with ease! This is the Welsh club's biggest ever victory margin in the Premier League.

80
Diakite takes his attempt at the Swansea goal, but fails to keep it on target.

79
I can see many of the QPR fans leave the stadium in disappointment. Getting beat 4-0 on the first day of the season in the Premier League is not something that they would have expected.

78
Substitution for QPR now. Johnson comes on for his QPR debut, as Cisse leaves to make way

77
Substitution for Swansea City now. Sinclair comes on for Dyer.

75
15 minutes left in this game, and, as it stands, Swansea are going to garner maximum points today.

74
Taarabt has been one bright spark for QPR and he goes solo again inside the Swans penalty area. However, he can only earn a corner that yields nothing.

72
Swansea are hungry for more, as Taylor and Routledge combine on the left, but the latter's attempt to find Graham inside the QPR penalty box is thwarted.

71
What a fantastic scoreline for Swansea City in their very first Premier League game under Michael Laudrup. 4-0 up on a ground they have never won before!

70
GOAL! Dyer scores his second goal of the game with an astute finish from close range and makes it 4-0 to Swansea! It was Agustien who carved out the brilliant long ball pass for Dyer.

68
Laudrup makes his first substitution of the game for Swansea. De Guzman goes off and on comes Agustien.

63
Substitution for QPR. Wright-Philips comes on for Clint Hill.

62
GOAL! Swansea are 3-0 up now, this time Nathan Dyer with the goal! Fabio's mispass sees Swansea go on the counter-attack, with Dyer eventually finding the target from just outside the QPR penalty box.

61
Rangel is now shown the yellow card for deliberate handball as he was trying to get the better of Fabion down his side.

60
30 more minutes remain in this game. Can QPR stage a comeback?

59
What a brilliant afternoon this is turning out to be for Swansea, their manager Michael Laudrup and striker Michu! Three points away from home would be a great start for the Swans.

57
Fabio now goes into the referee's book.

55
Yellow card to Diakite.

55
10 minutes gone in the second half, and you would be pardoned to believe that Swansea have done enough to go back to Wales with maximum points. QPR are still pressing on, so it is not over yet.

54
Mark Hughes is getting anxious on the touchlines, and he has a reason to be. His QPR side are 2-0 down despite having the run of play for most of the game.

53
Just as in the first-half, Swansea have scored despite QPR having the run of play. It was a brilliant goal from Michu - no one can blame Green for not keeping it out!

52
GOAL! Michu scores his second goal of the game with a brilliant curl and makes it 2-0 to Swansea! A very special goal built on a quick counter-attacking move conceived by Routledge.

50
Five minutes gone in the second half, and it is getting interesting indeed.

49
Swansea go on the attack now, as De Guzman receives the ball back from Routledge and finds Michu with a good pass. However, Michu's powerful header from the edge of the box is off target.

48
QPR have begun the second period the brighter of the two sides and are pressing on Swansea. Just as they did for much of the first half.

47
A big shout for penalty in the very first minute of the second half for QPR. Hoilett goes down under the challenge of Rangel, but the referee waves play on.

46
The second-half action at Loftus Road is underway now, with Swansea City leading Loftus Road 1-0 at the moment, thanks to a Michu goal after just eight minutes.

So what have you made of the first-half action at Loftus Road? Send me your comments and opinions and I will post the best ones here. You can email me at Subhankar.Mondal@bskyb.com or tweet me @subhankarjourno.

Michu's goal after eight minutes separates the two sides, and despite QPR's persistence thereafter for the equaliser, they could have gone 3-0 down as Chico and Michu's efforts not come off the crossbar.

45+2
It's half-time at Loftus Road as Swansea City lead their hosts Queens Park Rangers 1-0 in their opening game of the new Premier League season.

45+1
Brilliant passing football from Swansea, as Routledge, Dyer and Rangel combine on the right flank, but to no end product.

45
Michu! The Spanish striker hits the crossbar with a quick shot from just yards out following another good corner from De Guzman! So agonising for the Swans, who have hit the crossbar twice in the space of a few minutes.

44
De Guzman takes the free-kick but it is cleared for a corner.

43
Free-kick to Swansea on the left that De Guzman is about to take.

42
Three minutes left to half-time at Loftus Road, as QPR give their all to get an equaliser before Swansea go 2-0 up.

41
Chico! The Spaniard heads the corner against the QPR crossbar, as Green is stranded in no man's land. It could easily have been 2-0 to Swansea.

39
De Guzman! The Swansea player swings his free-kick and tries to curl it towards the top corner, but this time Green makes a brilliant save and concedes a corner.

38
Free-kick given to Swansea for Diakite's tackle on De Guzman.

37
Park runs with the ball towards the Swans penalty box and tries to send Cisse through on goal, but his ball is a bit too long for the striker.

36
Taarabt takes the free-kick across the face of the Swansea goal, but Graham heads it away before Onuoha could get to it.

35
Free-kick to QPR on the right as Taylor commits a foul on Mackie, with 10 minutes left to half-time.

33
Mackie continues to be a nuisance for Swansea down the right flank, but he is kept at bay by the Swans defenders once more with his cross.

31
Graham collects the ball on the left flank and gallops with it before sending a low cross for Michu, who commits a foul on his marker Samba Diakite and lets the chance to double his tally slip.

30
Vorm makes yet another save from a Taarabt shot from distance, as QPR continue to press on for the equalier.

29
There is just one goal to tell you of so far in the Premier League this afternoon. Fulham are leading Norwich City 1-0 at home, thanks to a goal from Damien Duff on 26 minutes.

28
Taarabt goes for a shot from the edge of the Swans penalty area from the right, but Vorm claims the ball with ease.

27
The sun is still shining brightly but not so much on QPR, who despite having the run of play in their favour, are still trailing by a goal to the Welsh club.

25
QPR fail to do anything concrete from the corner, as Vorm collects a shot from outside his penalty area with ease.

24
Good left-wing cross from Fabio that Cisse tries to head towards goal. But it takes a deflection off a defender and goes out for a corner

23
Hoilett once more for QPR! Taarabt slips the ball through to him inside the Swansea penalty area from the left, and he then fashions out a cross from the bye-line. However, Vorm collects it with ease, as it remains 1-0 to Swansea midway through the first-half.

22
Hoilett almost equalises with a close-range header, as he rises above his marker and Vorm from a long ball from Fabio, but he cannot keep it on target.

21
Mackie earns a corner for QPR, as his cross from the right is blocked by Taylor.

20
Hoilett is once again in the thick of the action, as he tries to create another chance down the left wing. Hoilett has been quite impressive for QPR thus far.

19
It has been a very good and entertaining match so far. The new Premier League season is truly underway at Loftus Road!

17
Britton and Michu try to combine in the QPR half but the home side's defenders are alert and the danger is staved off.

16
QPR bombard Vorm's goal and are starting to ask some real questions of the Swansea defence now. Taarabt is the first one to take an attempt, but his shot is partially cleared as it falls to Fabio, who then tries his luck but cannot keep his attempt on target.

15
15 minutes gone in this Premier League match at Loftus Road, and Swansea City lead QPR 1-0, thanks to a Michu goal after just eight minutes.

13
Hoilett!!! Brilliant play from the QPR man as he marches down the left flank, cuts inside and then tries a curling shot aimed at Vorm's far post. He cannot keep his shot on target, but it was a very encouraging effort from Hoilett.

12
The game has sparked into life now, with QPR having to chase it. Mark Hughes' side did start it on a positive note, but it is Swansea who have the advantage.

10
Terrific save by Michel Vorm as he keeps out Mackie's fierce from close range. Vorm was one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League last season, and this save shows why.

9
Green must be blamed for that goal, really. Michu's shot had power but for a goalkeeper playing at a Premier League level, he should have kept it out.

8
GOAL! Michu scores and makes it 1-0 to Swansea City after just eight minutes. A loose ball falls to Michu outside the QPR penalty area and he takes a first-time shot that easily gets past Green and into the net.

6
Onuoha releases Park down the right flank, and the South Korean tries to put in a cross but it is blocked by Routledge.

5
It has been a bright start to the game at Loftus Road, with QPR pressing high. Swansea are yet to get into the match, but they do have the talent to take it by the scruff of the neck before long.

3
Taarabt tries to craft a through-ball for Cisse, but it is too long and the ball goes out for a goal-kick.

2
QPR on the attack down the left in the very first minute, as full-back Fabio carves out a cross. But it is easily cleared away before any danger is conceived.

1
And here we start, as QPR kick-off proceedings at Loftus Road against Swansea City.

The two sets of players are now on the pitch as we are just five minutes away from kick-off at Loftus Road with the sun shining brightly above.

There are six other Premier League games this afternoon at 3 pm. Arsenal host Sunderland, Fulham entertain Norwich City, Stoke City are at Reading, Liverpool take on West Bromwich Albion away from home and West Ham United welcome Aston Villa. Newcastle United against Tottenham Hotspur is a 5:30 pm kick-off.

The players are set to come on to the pitch now.

Just 15 minutes left before kick-off at Loftus Road. It promises to be an interesting game. Keep your pre-match predictions coming. You can email me at Subhankar.Mondal@bskyb.com or tweet me @subhankarjourno.

Mark Allum has just sent me a tweet saying: "Good luck to QPR today! Cisse to open the scoring within 15 minutes!"

Sophie Isaac writes: "I support Swansea but I think it will be tough for them today considering they never win at Loftus Road. However, I think they will be strong with the new faces they have bought."

Cian Hughes is the first one to get in touch with me. He writes: "QPR have signed some good players, while Swansea lost a few players and got a new manager. But I think Swansea will win 2-0."

I now have the team news with me, which I will upload momentarily

The Swans have never won away at QPR in any competition, losing 10 and drawing nine visits to West London, so Laudrup will have some work to do.

Swansea lost manager Brendan Rodgers to Liverpool in the summer but they have able replacement in Michael Laudrup, who was a revered football during his time.

Both sides will be looking to embark on the new campaign with a victory, especially QPR who struggled against relegation last season and are at home today.
