Chelsea are four points ahead over Arsenal for the lead in the English Premier League and Queens Park Rangers are in a relegation battle as they face off on Saturday April 11th, 2015 at Loftus Road in London, England. Chelsea leads the English Premier League after beating Stoke City 2-1 on April 4th, 2015. Queens Park Rangers had a mixed Week 32 in the English Premier League, tying Aston Villa 3-3 on April 7th, 2015, but sit 18th in the table and are two points away from safety in the English Premier League in 2015-2016. Chelsea defeated Queens Park Rangers 2-1 on November 1st, 2014 in London, England.

Chelsea has been a bit out of form, relatively, as 11 of their last 12 games have been decided by one goal or less, but Chelsea are 7-5-0 in those games and even won the Capital One Cup over Tottenham on March 1st, 2015 by a score of 2-0. Chelsea did fall out of the Champions League, as they were level with Paris Saint-Germain on aggregriate 3-3 but lost on away goals. Chelsea cannot look past Queens Park Rangers, but host third in the table Manchester United on April 18th, 2015 and are visiting second in the table Arsenal on April 26th, 2015.

Queens Park Rangers lost their manager from the beginning of the season, as Harry Redknapp resigned on February 3rd. Since Chris Ramsey has taken the helm at Queens Park Rangers, the team has slumped further to a 2-1-6 record and a 18th place in the English Premier League table. Goals have not been an issue for forward Charlie Austin, who ranks third in the English Premier League with 17 goals, but he has 45% of his team’s goals and Queens Park Rangers has scored one or fewer goals in six of their last nine games.
