Queens Park Rangers boss Mark Warburton has enjoyed a steady start to his tenure at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium so far, with the R’s picking up three wins and one draw in the 57-year-old’s first six games in charge this season.
With the West London side currently sitting in eighth place, we take a look at THREE things QPR fans will be liking about Mark Warburton so far …
Positive style of play
Warburton has been brave in his approach to games while at QPR, with the manager regularly starting two strikers up front, with Jordan Hugill and Nahki Wells developing a strong partnership up top for the R’s.
This is a move that has paid dividends for both players with Hugill and Wells netting seven goals between them this season.
Has found roles for both Chair and Eze
As was seen in their recent victory over Sheffield Wednesday, Warburton has managed to manifest a way of getting Ilias Chair and Eberechi Eze into his starting eleven, with the attacking midfielders both operating in wide central midfield roles in a 5-3-2 formation against Wednesday as the R’s ran out winners at Hillsborough.
With both players being amongst QPR’s most creative, Warburton has done well to find a way of fitting them both into his side.
Everyone gets a chance
So far this season, Warburton has regularly tweaked both his starting eleven and formation, with the R’s operating in the 5-3-2 and 4-2-3-1 systems.
This has allowed Warburton to give almost every player within his squad some game time, with the R’s boss tending to decide on a starting eleven based on how the opposition sets their team out, rather than sticking to one formation every game.
