Esteban Granero: Believes QPR are capable of troubling Chelsea
Esteban Granero claims Queens Park Rangers should enter another stiff test against Chelsea in their next Premier League outing in confident mood.
Qualification for the 2014 World Cup takes centre stage this weekend, with domestic football taking an international break.
When top-flight action resumes, QPR will kick things off with a derby duel against capital foes Chelsea.
Mark Hughes' men will head into that encounter on the back of a 3-1 reverse against reigning champions Manchester City and two defeats in their opening three fixtures.
Granero, though, believes a side he has joined from Real Madrid can take plenty of positives with them into a home date with the UEFA Champions League winners.
"We can take this confidence into the Chelsea game now," he told Rangers' official website.
"We're also playing at Loftus Road, so this will give us some more strength. We will have our supporters with us.
"We will try hard. They're also a good team, but we have confidence in our team and we now have two weeks to prepare for it."
