Liverpool may be enjoying plenty of cup success but the trip to QPR offers the chance for them to get their Premier League campaign back on track.
The Reds won through to the FA Cup semi-final, where they will meet either Everton or Sunderland, with a 2-1 win over Stoke on Sunday.
Kenny Dalglish's team have already won their first trophy in six years, by beating Championship side Cardiff on penalties in the League Cup final.
That undoubted progress has not been matched in the league where they sit seventh in the table, 10 points behind fourth-placed Arsenal and just three ahead of newly-promoted Swansea.
QPR need the points for very different reasons, as they look to get themselves out of the relegation zone.
