Balague: Former QPR man Mbia reminds me of Yaya Toure

Former QPR star Stephane Mbia is in top form in La Liga.

Sevilla star Stephane Mbia is in superb form for the La Liga side, netting twice at the weekend in a win over Deportivo.

His brace in the 4-1 victory made it five goals in four starts for the central midfielder, a run of unbelievable form for the 28-year-old.

Unsurprisingly the plaudits are rolling in for the former QPR midfielder, who only permanently joined Sevilla this summer after a year on loan there last season.

Spanish football pundit Guillem Balague is a big fan, and compared the Cameroonian international to an established star.

He told SkySports: "Mbia came late without doing a pre-season but already has made an impact.

"He reminds me of Yaya Toure a lot – he goes box to box, he’s scored three goals in the last two games, and with Bacca is the top scorer at Sevilla at the moment."
