QPR midfielder Sandro admitted that he's 'looking forward' to facing former club Tottenham this weekend.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Sandro has told Get West London that he's looking forward to facing his former club Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.

QPR suffered another defeat on Wednesday night, losing 2-1 to Arsenal at Loftus Road - and must now prepare for another tough test at home, with Tottenham making the short trip across London to face Chris Ramsey's men.

The Arsenal game saw midfielder Sandro finally return from injury - just in time to face his former club this weekend, six months after leaving White Hart Lane in order to join his former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp at QPR.

Speaking to Get West London, Sandro say that not only is he eager to face his former employers, but also noted that Tottenham are on the same level as last night's opponents Arsenal.

"Of course, I’m looking forward to it," said Sandro. "But it won’t be any easier. Arsenal and Spurs are much the same level. We played well in the first half against Arsenal, but they have two chances and score from both.

"We show we can play well against the top teams - but we cannot keep losing. We need a win to rebuild confidence in the changing room, and if we can score an early goal, we can win," he added.

Sandro played 96 games for Spurs in his four year spell in North London, but has played just nine games for QPR this term having once again suffered with a number of injuries.

The Brazilian now has to hope that those injury woes are well behind him and that he can help QPR survive in the Premier League - and put a dent in Mauricio Pochettino's Champions League hopes in the process.
