Mbia optimistic ahead of Arsenal clash

Stephane Mbia has insisted Queens Park Rangers will head into this weekend's meeting with Arsenal in confident mood despite their winless start to the season.

QPR have failed to win any of their eight matches to date, leaving the club bottom of the Premier League table and pressure mounting on manager Mark Hughes.

Mbia, though, is optimistic ahead of Saturday's trip to Emirates Stadium, expressing his belief that QPR can get a result from the clash versus their London counterparts.

"Everybody wants to get that first win," he told the club's official website. "We haven't had much luck, but it is up to us to make our own luck and once we do the results will come.

"The lads are calm and we know if we keep improving we will start to climb the table. Arsenal is a big game for us and of course we know what London derbies mean for the fans.

"We can go to the Emirates with confidence, because we have a good team with a good, strong mentality. We have experience and at places like the Emirates, you need to be strong, composed and confident.

"Arsenal will want to bounce back from their defeat at Norwich, but we need the points as well to move up the table."

Mbia signed for QPR from Marseille in the summer and has said he is settling in well at Loftus Road. He added: "I feel as though I've settled down now in England.

"It always takes time to get used to a new country and a new way of life, but I feel like I am at home now and that will only help me on the pitch.

"The manager and Mike (Rigg, technical director) have been great in helping me settle in and I am very happy in London with Queens Park Rangers."
