Liverpool head to Loftus Road on Sunday hoping to end 2012 on a winning note and are just two goals short of hitting 50 under Brendan Rodgers in all competitions.
Last season at Loftus Road QPR won 3-2. After a goalless first half, Sebastian Coates and Dirk Kuyt put the Reds two goals in front with 18 minutes to go. Rangers hit back with 3 goals in the last 13 minutes from Shaun Derry, ex-Red Djibril Cisse and a last gasp winner from Jamie Mackie.
It was the first time in more than 11 years that Liverpool had lost a game after holding a two-goal lead.
Earlier in the campaign Liverpool won 1-0 at Anfield thanks to a goal from Luis Suarez.
The teams have met 10 times in the Barclays Premier League, with Liverpool winning seven and losing two. At Loftus Road the Reds have won three and lost twice.
There has only ever been one goalless draw in league meetings - at Loftus Road on Boxing Day 1991.
The Reds' biggest win at Loftus Road is a 3-1 victory they have recorded on three occasions - 1978-79, 1986-87 and 1993-94.
Their biggest win over QPR in all league games was a 4-0 victory at Anfield in October 1987.
This is the final Premier League fixture of the year. Both teams suffered losses last time out. Liverpool went down 3-1 at Stoke on Boxing Day while Rangers lost to West Brom at home (2-1).
The Reds' leading scorers in the Premier League in 2012 are Luis Suarez (17) and Steven Gerrard (seven).
At Stoke in midweek Steven Gerrard scored his first league goal away from Anfield since January 2011 (at Blackburn) and today he could score in successive away games in the Premier League for the first time since April 2010, when he netted at Birmingham and Burnley.
December 2007 was the last time Gerrard scored in four successive league games - a feat he could equal after recently finding the net against Aston Villa, Fulham and Stoke. His next league goal will equal his total for the whole of last season, when he was on the scoresheet five times.
Pepe Reina's next shut out will be his 127th in the league and see him overtake Elisha Scott to move into third place on the club's all-time league clean sheet list.
Both of Jonjo Shelvey's league goals for Liverpool have come against London opposition - Chelsea last season and West Ham earlier this month.
QPR are looking to record successive home league wins over Liverpool for the first time ever. The Londoners have won two of the last three league meetings at Loftus Road but only three of the last 11 clashes in London.
Rangers have scored more than twice against Liverpool on just three occasions - last season's game following a 3-2 win at home in November 1989 and a 3-1 victory in March 1991 at Anfield.
QPR had to wait until match 17 to record their first league win of the season - a Premier League record - with Adel Taarabt scoring both in a 2-1 win over Fulham. It is their only win of the league campaign so far.
Harry Redknapp was appointed as manager last month and took charge for the first time against Sunderland.
Rangers were unbeaten in Redknapp's first four games in charge but have since suffered defeats at Newcastle (0-1) and home to West Brom (1-2) either side of Christmas.
They have drawn four times at home (Chelsea, Everton, Reading and Aston Villa) while Swansea, West Ham and Southampton have all left Loftus Road with maximum points.
Harry Redknapp has won 12 and lost 11 of his 31 league games against Liverpool as a manager. He lost only one of his last six games against Liverpool with Tottenham. He is taking charge of his fifth different team against the Reds.
He saved Portsmouth from relegation in 2005-06 after being appointed before Christmas and did likewise with Tottenham in 2008-09.
Julio Cesar was in goal for Inter Milan against Liverpool in the Champions League in 2008, conceding three goals in the tie including one from Steven Gerrard.
Djibril Cisse played 79 times for Liverpool between 2004-07, scoring 24 times.
