Adel Taarabt is full of confidence going into the game with the Gunners after beating Liverpool at Loftus Road last time out

QPR star Adel Taarabt believes his side can cause an upset against Arsenal at the weekend.

The Gunners have won their last seven Premier League games but the playmaker believes that the Loftus Road crowd can spur on the side to victory.

“It’s going to be difficult but we have to give the fans another big performance,” the Moroccan said.

“I feel better when we play at Loftus Road than I do when we play away.

“I feel the fans are really behind me. When we played against Liverpool they were fantastic - with me and the team as well.

“We need them, that’s for sure, and I hope we can stay in this league.

“It’s a difficult run-in, but every time we play a big club we perform.

“Hopefully we can do the same again (in the run-in).

“It is very important for us that we take three points on Saturday.”

The west Londoners will go into the game without Djibril Cisse who has been banned for four games after his second red card since joining the club in January.
