Title Almost Ours After QPR Double

City 1 QPR 0

Report by Eddie Blount

City are within one win of securing the Championship for a record sixth time after a deserved though narrow win over pre-season title favourites, QPR. With three games to go and a lead of 7 points over second-placed, Burnley we call surely get the champagne out for a second time in recent weeks, having already secured promotion with plenty of games to spare.

City made two changes from the side that took an important point at Reading, Knockaert and King returning for Dyer and Vardy. I was pleased to see that Pearson did not repeat the disastrous mistake of playing Phillips from the start and King as a holding midfielder which saw us sunk without trace against Brighton.

King can only play as an attacking midfielder and then only when we play five in midfield. Against Brighton we played four against five and they kicked sand in our faces as you would expect from Seasiders. So we played a 4-5-1 formation which we will have to play every week in the Prem so in more ways than one this match resembled a typical premiership game between teams in the lower half of that table.

QPR did not pick their strongest team, presumably having given up on automatic promotion but nonetheless they looked a class above most of the sides we have seen this season. The burly Kranjcar in particular exuded class and produced numerous deft touches but with little end product.
