QPR hoping Man Utd will help keep them in Premier League

QPR fans will be supporting Manchester United tonight in a bid to prolong their EPL survival - for a short while at least.

Second-last QPR needs the Red Devils to beat Aston Villa, but if fourth-from-bottom Villa wins, that will mean QPR, and last-placed Reading, will be relegated.

Even QPR manager Harry Redknapp, who is nicknamed 'Harry Houdini' for the famous relegation battles he has won in the past, thinks his side is doomed following the 2-0 defeat at home by Stoke.

"It looks almost impossible, doesn't it? It would take a real miracle," Redknapp, who has won only four games since taking over from the sacked Mark Hughes in November, said.

In other games, Reading lost 2-1 at Norwich, West Ham beat third-last Wigan 2-0, while relegation-haunted Newcastle drew 1-1 at West Brom.

The draw leaves Newcastle six points clear of the last three and three points above Villa and behind Stoke and Sunderland, which beat Everton 1-0, on goal difference.

Arsenal moved third after a 1-0 win at Fulham, while the clash between Swansea and Southampton finished goalless.
