Jamie Mackie: Queens Park Rangers attacker confident of defeating Chelsea on Saturday
Queens Park Rangers forward Jamie Mackie is confident that they can defeat Chelsea in their Premier League clash at Loftus Road on Saturday.
QPR are currently second from bottom in the league table with just one point from three matches, while the Blues are at the top with a 100 per cent record.
However, Mackie has faith in the team to get the better of the European champions at home.
"Chelsea are a very good side and they've made a decent start to the season," he told QPR's official website.
"They've had quite a bit of upheaval themselves in terms of changes to the playing personnel, but there's no doubt that they've added great quality to their ranks.
"The likes of [Eden] Hazard and co. seem to have settled in really quickly, but it's about what we do on Saturday.
"We know we can beat the best here at Loftus Road, as we proved last season, and it's up to us to rediscover that winning mentality on Saturday.
"We can turn over the best this league has to offer on our own patch, so I've got every confidence."
