Aus­tralian in­ter­na­tional Mas­simo Luongo (pic­tured) is ar­guably QPR’s strong­est mid­field player and it will fall to Di­dier Ndong to try and shut down his in­flu­ence on the game. Ndong’s seven suc­cess­ful tack­les against Pre­ston in Sun­der­land’s last league game was com­fort­ably the high­est out of any player in the game. Cat­ter­mole was sec­ond for Sun­der­land, with three. Luongo has five goals in 31 caps f orh is coun­try, hav­ing made his deb ut w hile play­ing for Swin­don Town in 2 014. The 25-year-old was even named on the FIFA Bal­lon D’Or longlist in 2015.
