Queens Park Rangers supporters were largely impressed by Darnell Furlong's performance on his home debut against Arsenal.
The youngster was thrown in at the deep end and asked to mark Alexis Sanchez as the R's looked to cause an upset, but he stuck to his task admirably.
Although Furlong struggled at times, he still showed that he has plenty of quality and looks a very exciting prospect for the future.
The 19-year-old made one tackle, four interceptions and he also won four of his defensive duels in a performance which he can feel very proud of.

QPR boss Chris Ramsey has expressed a desire to utilise the club's academy system better in the future and Furlong looks like he could be the first to benefit from seeing regular first-team action.
The full-back has now made two appearances for the R's and he will be hoping that last night's showing has done enough to keep him in the team for the foreseeable future.
Here is the best reaction from QPR fans on social media site Twitter to Furlong's performance against Arsenal.
1st time I've seen Furlong play ~ keen & hungry, but should've started with Isla in this big game imo #QPR— Looey™ (@Looey13) March 4, 2015
Can't be too harsh on Furlong as he's a kid but appear to be in a relegation battle with rightback and attacking mid in limbo #QPR— K in W LDN (@KakoLDN) March 4, 2015
Good first half,shocking first 20 mins in second cost us.Sanchez v furlong was asking for trouble and Sandro going off turned the game #qpr— Ben Platt_qpr (@bplatt23) March 4, 2015
#QPR I feel bad for Darnell Furlong. I felt he and Yun were really good in the first half.I was surprised to see Furlong selected,given it..— Akshay (@TheAkshayVara) March 4, 2015
#QPR ....Sanchez, but I tell you, with a bit of time and experience, Darnell Furlong will be a fine player.— Akshay (@TheAkshayVara) March 4, 2015
Really good effort by the lads tonight and also great to see youth being given a run in the team. Young Darnell Furlong had a good game #QPR— Bill Jackson (@therealbillyj) March 4, 2015
Hoilett was useless & poor Furlong got terrorised 2nd half but can't be too critical when you have Sanchez to mark on your home debut #QPR— Ross Winter (@RosswerQPR) March 4, 2015
Darnell Furlong looking good as well even if both goals come from his side, looks composed on the ball good young prospect. #QPR— Jamie Darlison (@jdarlison) March 4, 2015
Furlong played so good, but to put him up against Sanchez in home debut was a mistake......fact #qpr— luke reid (@lukereid95) March 4, 2015
