Darren Bent starts! Darren Bent starts! Show us what you've got, Darren. Or show QPR and Liverpool. Either way, let's have some goals. And is it just me, or is that a pretty defensive midfield? What do you think? Liking this lineup? Do you think Shay's up for it?

(Thank goodness Ryan Bennett and Joe Bennett are unavailable today. It's bad enough with Elliotts Barnett and Bennett).
