QPR will be hoping to make it through to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup against an under strength Everton side.
But the Toffees still head into the Loftus Road encounter as favourites against their Championship hosts on Tuesday night.
Can the Hoops prevail against their much-fancied opponents.
Here’s all the key information you need to know ahead of the tie.
What’s the team news?
Sam Field (knee) and Luke Wallace (hamstring) are both confirmed absentees for QPR.
Luke Amos has recently recovered from a long-term setback and could feature at some point.
Striker Charlie Austin and winger Albert Adomah were on the bench in QPR’s previous Championship encounter, and could be included from the start.
What about the opposition?
Benitez will be without four of his key players yet again.
Richarlison (knee), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (quad), Seamus Coleman (hamstring) and Jordan Pickford (shoulder) are all absent for the next couple of weeks.
Fabian Delph continues his recovery from a shoulder injury and Jean-Philippe Gbamin remains sidelined.
Fringe players such as Jonjoe Kenny, Tom Davies, Anthony Gordon and Jarrad Branthwaite could all feature.
Could anyone make a debut?
For Everton Salomon Rondon is the only fit senior striker and he may not be risked.
It could, therefore, hand an opportunity to Ellis Simms to make his bow.
The 19-year-old netted 10 goals in 24 games while on loan at Blackpool last season, helping them earn League One promotion.
Simms has only just recovered from a hamstring injury but was on the bench in the defeat at Villa.
QPR (3-4-3): Archer, Kakay, Dickie, Dunne; Odubajo, Thomas, Dozzell, McCallum, Chair, Austin Willock
Everton(3-4-3): Begovic, Godfrey, Holgate, Keane, Kenny, Davis, Gomez, Branthwaite, Iwobi, Simms, Gordon.
