79
Mackie wins a throw on the left deep in the Liverpool half. He takes it, screams for the return in space but Derry eventually loses the ball.

77
Liverpool have a three-man break and should have created a good chance to make it 4-0 but Gerrard's control lets him down and his attempt on goal is dealy with comfortably.

Taarabt fouled on the left wing by Johnson so a free-kick to QPR.

76
Liverpool free-kick launched into the QPR box by Gerrard but it is catching practice for Cesar.

Onuoha has played well on the whole and he gets in another important tackle on Sterling. The resultant corner is fired behind via a defelction by Agger.

73
Long ball from the back searches out Mackie but he has just strayed offside.

72
Great interplay between Gerrard and Suarez sets the striker clear in the box but he delays his shot and the QPR defence is back to crowd him out.

55
Wright-Phillips tries to make something happen down the right but Erique is able to see the ball behind for a Liverpool goal-kick.

53
Suarez nearly sets up a Liverpool fourth as his cross is almost headed goalward by Steven Gerrard but Onuoha does superbly well to get there just in front of him. Henderson then fires a shot over from the resultant short corner.

Lewis Price is back again and says: "After being a lifelong Rangers fan for 53 years,i'm hanging up my supporters badge now! No fight,no guts,no determination! In two seasons time,a local derby for Q.P.R.will be against Brentford. R.I.P. you sorry excuse for a football team!"

52
A little bit better from QPR as they are at least closing down Liverpool more quickly and giving them less time on the ball.

46
Cisse has been replaced by Shaun Derry for QPR. We are under way once again.

Rob Davies says: Great half time result, in some ways disappointed its not more. I said 3:1 at the start of the game, it won't be that on the first half performance! Liverpool to win 5 or 6:1. Great. Would like to see some of the youngsters come on, perhaps for Suarez and Gerrard ( when Suarez has scored 3)!!!"

QPR are 250/1 at the break with Sky Bet to battle back from 3-0 down and win with Liverpool trading at 1/1000. The draw is 66/1 while a 3-3 draw can be backed at a price-boosted 75/1. Liverpool to win 6-0 with Sky Bet is 12/1 while Djibril Cisse is the same price to get the next goal.

45+1

39
Agger fouled by Cisse inside the Liverpool half on the left. Johnson then fouls Taarabt on halfway.

38
This is getting ridiculous as Suarez dances through the QPR defence. He pulls the ball back to Gerrard, who should score but his effort is kicked off the line.

37
Strong run down the right from Samba Diakite but he is soon muscled off the ball by Enrique.

35
Sterling has the freedom of Loftus Road down the left but Suarez can't finish off the cross. QPR are once again ripped apart and Liverpool players are simply lining up to provide a finish.

33
Liverpool continue to carve QPR open and it is just a question of whether they can find a finish to the build-up play.

31
Deep cross from Gerrard is deflected behind for another Liverpool corner. A long-range shot from Henderson flashes just past the QPR upright.

29
Throw-in on the right deep in the QPR half taken by Johnson. The pressure continues to build and Liverpool win another corner.

26
The resultant corner is spilled by Cesar and the ball is stabbed just wide of the post.

26
Johnson nearly makes it three as he latches onto a long pass into the QPR area - he can't quite get enough on his shot and Ryan Nelsen makes a last-ditch clearance under his own bar.

25
Plenty of space all round the park for Liverpool and this is so comfortable for the visitors at the moment.

24
Another promising break down the left but Sterling is careless with his pass to Enrique and the Spaniard lets the youngster know his feelings.

23
Long crossfield ball from Cisse tries to seek out Mackie but goes behind for a Liverpool goalkick.

21

18
Game comes to a halt as Stephane Mbia goes to the floor after an accidental clash with Gerrard.

2
More pressure down the right from Liverpool but Glen Johnson's cross is headed clear.

1
Early Liverpool break down the right involving Jordan Henderson but Luis Suarez can't control his ball in the QPR box.

1
QPR get the game under way.

Thanks to everyone who got in touch via email - the teams are now out on the pitch. Enjoy the game.

Mark Overington has also got in touch again: "Just one more point to add is that I think Lucas should of played ahead of Henderson as I just don't think he is as good as what Lucas is. I used to dislike Lucas when he first got into the first team but he was an inspiration before his injury last term. Not sure it'll work with Jordan in there today. Still stick at 3-2 to the reds though." Many thanks, Mark.

Rob Davies has been back in touch: "To add to what I previously said, it's good to see Brendan Rodgers trying out some young and new subs, brilliant! 3-1 still confident."

Pre-match update: QPR manager Harry Redknapp chose to recall goalkeeper Julio Cesar, meaning Robert Green drops out of the side after five successive starts. Nedum Onuoha, Ryan Nelsen and Samba Diakite are also brought in after the 2-1 Boxing Day defeat to West Brom.

Pre-match update: Liverpool make three changes today as they looked to secure a win at QPR without manager Brendan Rodgers. The Reds boss misses this afternoon's game after being taken ill in London, with back-up goalkeeper Brad Jones and head of performance Glen Driscoll also sent home with the bug. Assistant manager Colin Pascoe and coach Mike Marsh deputise at Loftus Road, where Joe Allen, Jordan Henderson and former Rs youth team player Raheem Sterling are brought into the starting line-up.

Here is the Liverpool team: Reina, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Jose Enrique, Allen, Henderson, Downing, Gerrard, Sterling, Suarez. Subs: Gulacsi, Assaidi, Coates, Lucas, Carragher, Fernandez Saez, Shelvey.

Here is the QPR team: Julio Cesar, Onuoha, Nelsen, Hill, Traore, Mackie, Diakite, Mbia, Wright-Phillips, Taarabt, Cisse. Subs: Green, Derry, Ferdinand, Granero, Da Silva, Hoilett, Faurlin.

Rob Davies says: "I am a Liverpool supporter and realistically I think both teams must win this game, QPR to move closer to safety and Liverpool to keep within touch of the likes if West Brom, Everton, Arsenal and spurs who are the be t few spaces above us. I think it will be a close game. QPR 1:3 Liverpool. Liverpool to go two up in first half, cisse to pull one back and Suarez to seal it. Looking forward to it."

Charlie Fowley says: "Qpr have got this easy today liverpools only chance is suares and he hasn't been doing well lately has he so I'm saying 2-0 Qpr."

A neutral viewpoint from Patrick Byrne: "Coming from the neutral perspective i think qpr can cause an up set and in paticular taarabt who is very underated to have a good game, from the liverpool point of view id say prob one of the most inconsistent pool teams we have seen for a while, i think gerrard and carragher need to bow out gracefully and give others a chance to step up and show ther worth, alll in all 2 teams with decent enough players but not seeming to play for each other id say qpr 3-1."

Here is another positive mention for the home side from Henry McFarlane: "Hi David, i think that QPR really have a good chance at getting 3 points today. Redknapp has put out a team full of hard workers and great characters. 2-0 with djibril cisse and swp on the scoresheet." Thanks for your prediction, Henry.

Iain is in confident mood and says: "Liverpool will win easily. 5-1 with Suraz, Sktrel and Gerrard sharing the goals. Cisse to score for QPR. Come on you Reds!!"

At last - a prediction of a home win as Colin Dawes says: "3-1 to Qpr and taarabt to have a blinder. C'mon u rs!"

Ollie Gill is the first emailer to give QPR a chance: "I think its going to be a close game today, going for a 2-2 draw. Qpr are on the up!"

Thanks to Fionn Herlihy, who is also going for a comfortable Liverpool win: "4-1 to liverpool to win today. Sterling, Suarez (2), Gerrard and taarabt getting on the scoresheet today."

Karpal Samra is hoping that Liverpool can raise their game at Loftus Road today: "I wanted to say as LFC fan i read about LFC being a average side these days & maybe the fans should accept that becuse its seems to be fact. Just hope its not another performance like the one we put in at stoke."

Thanks to Mark Overington, who predicts a thriller: "I think this will be a tough test for Liverpool but a much needed victory. I'm thinking 3-2 Liverpool with Suarez the first to net. Come on you Reds!"

Dave Mumby says: "Liverpool should really be winning these games. Need an early goal and I wouldn't put it past them scoring a few."

John Molloy is a nervous Reds fan: "As a Liverpool fan. I am very worried about todays game. I just dont trust us from one week to the next. Hate to say it but going for 1-0 QPR."

Another thumbs-up for Liverpool from Nathan Forward: "Liverpool seem to struggle when playing against a lone physical striker, I don't see Djibril Cisse as a handful, so I'm going for a 3-0 away win (suarez 2 and skrtel)."

Robert Shield is also confident that Liverpool will collect three points - "Liverpool to get the win today. Suarez to net first. Result 3-0."

Thanks to Jack Pye, who keeps it short and sweet "3-0 win for Liverpool today Suarez scoring 2 Gerrard scoring 1."

Some early pre-match news - Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will not be in the dugout as he has been sent home with a virus. Rodgers is one of three members of the Reds' travelling party to have been sent home with back-up goalkeeper Brad Jones and head of performance Glen Driscoll the others. Colin Pascoe and Mike Marsh will deputise for Rodgers.

Let me know your thoughts how this one will go and I will publish as many as I can before kick-off - the email address is david.john@bskyb.com

Good afternoon - some early betting news from Sky Bet on this game with Liverpool 4/5 for the win, QPR 10/3 and the draw 13/5. Luis Suarez is a 4/1 chance to open the scoring with Djibril Cisse the shortest price of the host strikers at 7/1. You can back the mercurial Adel Taarabt at 8/1 to score first and he is 11/4 to net anytime.
