Chelsea's march towards the title continues at neighbours Queens Park Rangers who need points for another reason.

With eight games remaining, Chelsea remain top of the Barclays Premier League, seven points clear of Arsenal and with a game in hand - against bottom club Leicester City. They can now see the title looming; five wins will return the trophy to Stamford Bridge.

The Blues remain the dominant force in the top flight, particularly after the demise of reigning champions Manchester City, who dropped to fourth following their shock 2-1 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Chelsea's 2-1 win over Stoke City last weekend was their 10th league game without defeat, a run that has produced seven wins and three draws (24 points out of a possible 30).

They make the three and-a-half mile journey to Loftus Road, however, having won only nine of their 15 away games, though they have scored 33 goals on the road - the most in the Premier League.

When these teams met in November Eden Hazard earned Chelsea a 2-1 win. However, in six Premier League trips to Loftus Road Chelsea have won just once - in January 1996.
