QPR’s Esteban Granero wary of an Arsenal looking to respond
QPR midfielder Esteban Granero is wary of the threat posed by an Arsenal side looking to bounce back from successive defeats
Esteban Granero admits Queens Park Rangers must be wary of the threat posed by an Arsenal side looking to bounce back from successive defeats this weekend.
The Gunners’ surprise loss at Norwich last Saturday was compounded by Wednesday’s comprehensive 2-0 defeat by Schalke at The Emirates.
QPR, meanwhile, are still searching for their first Premier League win of the season ahead of their visit to Arsenal on Saturday.
And Granero is hopeful Mark Hughes’ men can cause the Gunners problems but remains full of respect for Arsene Wenger’s side.
“Arsenal are a great team with very high-class, quality players,” Granero told the London Evening Standard. “They are one of the best teams in the League.
“They wouldn’t have expected to lose to Norwich last weekend, so they will want to respond. Arsenal won’t want to lose two League games in a row.
“However we want the victory as well. We want the first three points of the season, so we’ll work hard and, hopefully, cause them problems.”
