Burnley midfielder Chris Eagles has been identified by Vital QPR as the One to Watch as QPR travel to Turf Moor on Saturday.

Name: Chris Eagles

Date of Birth: 19/11/1985

Former Clubs: Man Utd, Sheffield Wednesday, Watford, NEC

Appearances (Goals): 174 (24)

Skilful midfielder Chris Eagles will have to be watched closely on Saturday as he looks to help manager-less Burnley defeat QPR. With 6 goals in 21 league appearances this season, QPR`s defensive unit will have to be tighter than ever to keep the 25 year old at bay.

Having originally come through the youth system at Watford he joined the Manchester United Academy at the age of 14. Eagles eventually made his first team debut in 2003 as a substitute in a League Cup game against Leeds, but in order to gain some first team experience he was sent on loan to Watford in 2005 where he made 13 appearances and scored 1 goal.

Further loan spells at Sheffield Wednesday and Watford again followed, where he scored a memorable goal for the Hornets against Brighton scoring from the half way line, subsequently winning him the club`s goal of the season award.

In 2006 he spent four months on loan at Dutch outfit NEC Nijmegen, making 15 appearances and scoring 1 goal. He found himself back at Man Utd and in 2007 scored his first senior goal for United in a 4-2 win over Everton, in a season where they managed to clinch the Premier League title.

On 29 July 2008 Eagles signed a 3 year deal with Burnley for an undisclosed fee. The former United winger made a major impact in his first season at Turf Moor and played a prominent role in the Clarets` promotion from the Championship, making a total of 41 appearances scoring 7 goals in the 2008/2009 season.

He went on to feature in 34 of the Claret`s top-flight games in the 2009/2010 season and stand out performances against Man Utd and Arsenal proved he could mix it with the best. Eagles will be determined to help Burnley back into the top flight and having featured prominently in the fixture at Loftus Road, he will have to be marked tightly on Saturday.

EFL - The Stats Ten Games In (30/9/16)

The Football League, or as it wants to be known now, the EFL, have compiled the statistics with the vast majority of clubs now ten games into the new 2016/17 season.

Which Manager Has Spent The Most?

The modern game tells us that the club who spends the most money wins. So does the manager who spends the most money win the most also?

Hasselbaink Involved In Telegraph Sting

Polter Saves QPR

A SECOND half strike from Seb Polter ensured Queens Park Rangers took a share of the spoils in a less than thrilling return to the Pirelli Stadium for Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

While the home supporters chanted the name of their former manager - who guided them into League One and helped pave the way for their current Championship status - the visiting supporters were left exasperated by another fairly tepid display.

It could have been worse for the visiting side as they fell behind
