Ferdinand recalls triumph as QPR aim to shock Man Utd

The Sun and Daily Mirror both pick up on comments by Anton Ferdinand, who was part of the West Ham team that avoided the drop by winning at Manchester United in 2007.

Ferdinand’s QPR side are massive underdogs ahead of their Easter Sunday trip to Old Trafford, but the defender believes that they too can cause an upset.

He said: “One of the highlights of my career was going there with West Ham and beating them to stay in the Premier League.

“It was fantastic. We defended for our lives – not many people keep a clean sheet there, let alone win the game. Results like that show it can be done.

“When it comes to a relegation battle, it is not about form, it’s about mentality. As long as we keep it tight at the back, there’s no reason why we can’t unlock their defence at the other end.”
