They have won eight and lost none of the last 11 meetings with the Hoops in all competitions and come into the game on the back of thrashing Wolves 4-1 to extend their unbeaten run in the league to eight (won 5, Drawn 3).
Sir Alex Ferguson’s young guns have also won five of their last six games and conceded just two goals in the process despite having their squad stretched.
With Darren Fletcher taking an extended break from the game with ulcerative colitis, Nemanja Vidic ruled out for the season, Anderson battling a long-term knee problem and Javier Hernandez and Tom Cleverley both sidelined they have pulled together well to grind out results and keep tabs on City.
This game really should hold no fears for them, and with Rooney and Nani back among the goals a comfortable victory looks on the cards.
It was great to see Wazza break his barren spell and find the back of the net twice against Wolves, and he is the type of player who is very difficult to stop when he gets the bit between his teeth.
His latest brace will have given his confidence a tremendous boost, and from a punting perspective he looks worth following in the coming weeks.
He is a top priced 4.33 with bet365 to open the scoring on Sunday, and that looks terrific value given that many firms go just 3.75.
At those odds he will certainly be carrying my cash but I will also be having s small saver on Nani at 8 with Betfred as the price is simply too big to ignore.
Given that QPR have now lost four of their last six and are best with injuries it really is difficult to see them being able to trouble United, and the 2.37 with Paddy Power about us winning to nil looks a huge price and definitely worth a punt.
