21 passes, 2 shots: The QPR player who impressed despite their defeat to West Brom



QPR suffered their sixth successive defeat on Tuesday, as they fell to an agonising 3-2 defeat against promotion chasing West Brom at Loftus Road. 

The Hoops conceded in injury time, and only finished the game with ten men, with Luke Freeman going off injured despite QPR having used all of their substitutions.

Freeman is the subject of our FLW Spotlight this week, so we’re going to look into his performance in more detail.

Freeman cancelled out Jefferson Montero’s early goal in this one, as he finished clinically inside the area after 35 minutes.

The former Arsenal youngster did only manage two shots during the game, which is understandable given that QPR had their backs against the wall for the majority of the evening.

The 26-year-old attempted 21 passes in total, and with a pass success rate of 76.2%, it makes good reading for both Steve McClaren and the QPR supporters.

He also made four accurate crosses and two key passes and was one of the standout players for QPR in the defeat.

This has been the story for a considerable amount of time now, and Freeman is often carrying QPR to wins this season, and other players will have to step up and take the weight off of his shoulders.

The winger is unlikely to be fit for their game against Middlesbrough this weekend with a hip injury according to West London Sport. 

Freeman’s potential absence would be a huge blow to QPR’s already slim chances of getting a positive result against a Middlesbrough side that are challenging for promotion this season.
