QPR go to Arsenal on Saturday searching for a first win of the season – and it helps Adel Taarabt a whole heap the opposition plays the same way he does.
The Ranger with the silky skills reckons facing mirror images can only help the quest for that elusive win.
“We have a tough game at Arsenal on Saturday,” said the midfielder.
“We played some good stuff against Everton and we’re going to go there to win.
“I enjoy playing against good footballing teams and Arsenal have made a great start to the season.”
Tarrabt (pic) and Rs thought the drought was over in Sunday’s misty rain when they took a Premier League lead for the first time this season.
Junior Hoilett’s deflected drive put QPR ahead on just two minutes. But they were pegged back when Sylvain Distin was given space to head against a post that hit a helpless Julio Cesar for the equaliser.
Steven Pienaar’s dismissal for a second yellow gave Rangers the extra man – and Taarabt believes it was his side’s urgency to get the winning goal that cost them.
He said: “We should have won it in the last 20 minutes when they went down to 10 men.
"Sometimes we went forward too quickly when we could have kept the ball and played the right pass.
"But because we wanted to win, we went forward too quickly and lost our concentration a little bit.”
