QPR could be without new signing Loic Remy, who has a hamstring injury, while the visitors are likely to be missing defenders Vincent Kompany and Matija Nastasic. The hosts are in last place with 15 points while visitors Manchester City are in 2nd place with 51 points.
Roberto Mancini's side currently sit five points behind Premier League leaders Manchester United with the Red Devils to face Southampton on Wednesday in a game they will be expecting to win, making it vital City do not drop points at Loftus Road.
Currently enjoying a run of four straight wins, the reigning champions look to be in irresistible form with an impressive 2-0 triumph over Arsenal earlier this month typifying their capability of besting the league's top sides.
They will come up against a QPR side who suffered a soul-destroying 4-2 loss at the hands to Milton Keynes Dons in the FA Cup on Saturday, a game which manager Harry Redknapp described as 'disgusting'.
Queens Park Rangers
Harry Redknapp may well find himself unable to call upon recent arrival Loic Remy (hamstring), with the Frenchman likely to be subject to a late fitness test prior to Tuesday's clash.
The London side are currently bottom of the Premier League and despite the fact there are 15 games left in the season they will be more than aware their chances of survival will diminish with every dropped point.
Fellow attackers Junior Hoilett (hamstring), Bobby Zamora (hip) and Andrew Johnson (knee) are also unavailable for the hosts, while Jose Bosingwa (back) is too absent through injury.
Samba Diakite, meanwhile, is at the Africa Cup of Nations with Mali.
