HARRY Redknapp reaffirmed the opinion that ‘there are no easy games in the Premier League’ after learning Hull City will provide QPR’s first opposition back in the top flight.
Steve Bruce’s men arrive at Loftus Road on the opening day of the 2014/15 campaign looking to build on their own successful return to the pinnacle of English football which ended with an FA Cup final appearance and a place in next season's Europa League.
Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk
this morning, Redknapp said: “It’s a tough start.
“Hull’s going to be a tough opening game. They did a great job last year, Steve Bruce brought some good players in and they’ll be looking to improve again this year.
“They’ll be tough opposition.”
Meanwhile, Rangers travel to Redknapp’s former employers Tottenham Hotspur for newly-appointed manager Mauricio Pochettino’s home bow in the R’s first away game of the campaign.
The trip to White Hart Lane - where Redknapp spent almost four years in charge - will also see the R's boss return to north London for the first time since leaving Spurs in the summer of 2012.
“It’s another tough fixture,” he said.
“They’ve got a new manager, so it’ll be his first home game. There'll be a great atmosphere and it will be an interesting game.”
Games against Sunderland (H), Manchester United (A) and Stoke City (A) follow while Redknapp and co. conclude the campaign after a busy May which includes testing trips to Liverpool and Manchester City.
Redknapp added: “When you look at them there are no easy games in the Premier League.
“I’m sure the fans are looking forward to it.”
