QPR playmaker Adel Taarabt believes foreign players at the club should be afforded more time to settle in to life in the Premier League.

Real Madrid midfielder Esteban Granero and Marseille utility player Stephane Mbia are among those who arrived at Loftus Road over the summer with little experience of the English game.

Samba Diakite also took time to adjust to the pace of the Premier League following his January move from French side Nancy and Taarabt has urged a patient approach to be taken.

"We have a lot of players it's true but we have foreign players who have not yet adapted to English football," the Moroccan told the Fulham and Hammersmith Chronicle.

"For Esteban he tries to get the ball down and play it there - but it has been difficult and we need more time."

QPR entertain Everton in a Sky Live clash on Sunday with Mark Hughes' side looking to secure their first league win of the season at the eighth attempt.
