Redknapp's side are top of the table going into the game, with Leicester third having lost two of their last three league matches.

Victory at Loftus Road would see Rangers remain in pole position for Christmas and Redknapp has urged his players to make the most of that opportunity.

"It will be a good atmosphere. A full house, everyone in the festive spirit and two (of the) top sides in the Championship," he said.

"They've had some difficult games recently and some mixed results, but I'm sure they'll be there at the end of the season.

"It's a big opportunity for us. The league table will look really positive for us if we can get a positive result

"Leicester have got loads of pace about them. We've had them watched several times and they're a good, good side.

"There's seven or eight teams who will be up there competing for promotion - I expect us and Leicester to be in the mix for sure."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
