Rafa Benitez will be looking for a reaction after Everton suffered their first loss of the season on Saturday - a 3-0 loss at Aston Villa.

Here’s all the key information you need to know ahead of the tie.

What's the team news?

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?

Salomon Rondon is Everton's 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.

What about the opposition?

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.
