Match Preview: Liverpool vs QPR

Jamie Carragher bows out of playing when Liverpool take on relegated Queens Park Rangers on Sunday at Anfield.

Liverpool will be looking to celebrate Carragher's career in style as they round off the season at Anfield.

The Reds have been in a good run of form and are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League outings.

Brendan Rodgers' men have nothing to play for as they can finish no higher than seventh, but they will be looking to send the Anfield crowd away in positive spirits ahead of next season.

Queens Park Rangers say farewell to the Premier League aiming to end a miserable campaign on a high.

The Loftus Road have currently won just four games in the Premier League this term and defeat will confirm they will finish bottom of the table.

Carragher will captain Liverpool in his final game for the club after 16 years at Anfield and will lead the team out to a guard of honour from both sides.

Liverpool will again be without captain Steven Gerrard after undergoing shoulder surgery, while Luis Suarez serves the fourth game of his 10-match suspension.

Daniel Agger is out with a back problem, but Martin Skrtel could return after missing last weekend's win over Fulham through illness.

Martin Kelly, Joe Allen and Raheem Sterling all remain unavailable.

Queens Park Rangers are likely to be without Loic Remy following his arrest in midweek over allegations of rape.

Robert Green is expected to continue to deputise in goal as QPR look set to be without first-choice goalkeeper Julio Cesar once again.

Adel Taarabt, Shaun Wright-Phillips and DJ Campbell all remain on the sidelines for Harry Redknapp's side.
