United will be desperately looking for a win in this game after failing to do so in their first three games against Swansea City, Sunderland and Burnley.

The Red Devils suffered a shock 1-2 defeat in the very first game of the season against the Swans, while they were only able to manage draws against the Black Cats (2-2) and the Clarets (0-0) in the following weeks.

Plus, United's defeat to MK Dons in the Capital One Cup was more embarrassing as they lost the game by a 0-4 scoreline to the tier three side.

The Red Devils seem to be struggling to come to terms with Louis van Gaal's new 3-5-2 system as they have looked very vulnerable at the back and lacklustre up front.

However, United will be looking to put everything behind in this fixture, especially now that they have completed the signing of Colombian star Ramadel Falcao (on a season long loan deal, with an option to buy).

However, van Gaal has not revealed whether the former Atletico Madrid striker will start against QPR or not.

"I cannot tell if you he plays or not, because that's our surprise," van Gaal told ESPN.

Asked whether the Colombian will be back to his best following a lengthy spell on the sidelines in the second half of last season, van Gaal replied: "That's a question we cannot answer. That's also dependant on form, shape and we cannot predict that."

QPR will be looking to continue winning ways following their victory against Sunderland in the last fixtureReuters

Meanwhile, QPR will be hoping to continue winning ways following the victory against Sunderland in their last Premier League fixture.

Following back-to-back defeats against Hull City (0-1) and Tottenham (0-4) in their opening fixtures, the Hoops did well to get the win against Sunderland, who have been doing well this season.

Although United will be the favourites in this game, the Hoops will be looking to take advantage of the Red Devils' recent lack of form and confidence, and at least salvage a draw at Old Trafford.

Rio Ferdinand will return to Old Trafford for the first time, after being released by United this summer. QPR boss Harry Redknapp wants the 35-year-old defender to focus on the game rather than be nostalgic on his return to Manchester.

"I just want Rio to play his game. Van Persie can get it on to his left foot and smack one in from 30 yards. We don't need Rio to tell us that," Redknapp told the Mirror.

Following their 0-4 thumping at Tottenham, many believe that QPR may suffer a similar result at Old Trafford. But Redknapp insists that his side is not worried about the prospect of a heavy defeat.

"You can worry too much. In fact, you can drive yourself mad in this game by worrying too much about the opposition. When we went to Spurs and lost 4-0 we were too concerned with how we were going to drop back into our shape. So, in the end, everyone has gone out there worried about what we were going to do and where we've got to be at 3.10pm.

"In the end, you forget to play yourselves. There's nothing like playing with energy and getting after teams. For me, that's still the key. You've got to be competing."

Team News:

United will be without the services of Ashley Young for this game as he is currently suffering from a groin injury. Long-term absentees including Michael Carrick (ankle), Marouane Fellaini (foot), Phil Jones (hamstring), Jesse Lingard (knee) and Chris Smalling (groin) are also all set to miss this tie.

The good news for United is that Rafael and Ander Herrera will return to the squad as they have fully recovered from a groin and ankle injury respectively. Louis van Gaal may also hand debuts to summer signings Radamel Falcao, Daley Blind, Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo in this game.

Meanwhile, Alejandro Faurlin is set to miss this game as he has been ruled out with a knee problem. Joey Barton, who pulled his hamstring in the last game, is also a doubt for this game. Apart from that Redknapp has no other injury concerns.

New signings Sandro and Niko Kranjcar are expected to make their debut for the Hoops in this fixture.

Expected Lineups:

Manchester United: David de Gea; Jonny Evans, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw; Rafael, Ander Herrera, Daley Blind, Angel Di Maria; Juan Mata; Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie.

Queens Park Rangers: Robert Green; Mauricio Isla, Steven Caulker, Rio Ferdinand, Clint Hill; Matt Phillips, Sandro, Niko Kranjcar, Junior Hoilett; Leroy Fer; Charlie Austin.
