Comedian Seann Walsh makes his Premier League predictions

Walsh is a season-ticket holder at Loftus Road, but missed the drama of Bobby Zamora's 90th-minute winner that saw QPR beat Derby in the play-off final last May to clinch promotion to the Premier League because he had left Wembley early.

"I had to go at half-time to do a show in Shrewsbury," Walsh told BBC Sport. "When I left I was literally crying. I was walking in the wrong direction down Wembley Way.

"I was on a train when I heard we had been promoted. I had bumped into Jimmy Carr and I was sat behind a Derby fan.

"I found out Bobby Zamora had scored and that we were up and I celebrated. Then I was asked to keep it down because we were on the quiet coach. That was my Zamora moment."
