Alejandro Faurlin says Chris Ramsey could have selection issues at Queens Park Rangers

Queens Park Rangers still have Leroy Fer and Sandro to come back to fitness in the near future.

Alejandro Faurlin has told Queens Park Rangers' official website that Chris Ramsey could face a selection dilemma when everyone in his team is fit.

The R's have improved rapidly as this season has progressed, and they have lost just once in their last seven league outings. 

With the likes of Leroy Fer and Sandro still to come back into contention, optimism is high at Loftus Road and Faurlin admits that Ramsey could find it difficult to pick his starting line-up when the duo are available for selection. 

“We still have Leroy Fer and Sandro to come back into the squad," he said. "We have a strong squad. The gaffer has a nice problem in which team to pick. As I said, we have to be up for the challenge – and we need to give him all the options possible.”

Faurlin will be in direct competition with Fer and Sandro for a place in Ramsey's team, but the Argentine midfielder has made a good claim to keep his spot.

QPR are unbeaten whenever Faurlin has started this term, and he put in a good display on Saturday - when the London side picked up a draw against Hull City. 

That point leaves the R's in ninth in the Championship standings, with their attention now turning towards a local derby against Fulham.

Ramsey's men will be keen to secure local bragging rights in the fixture, and Faurlin says that he is looking forward to playing in such a highly charged affair. 

“I always look forward to these games,” he said. “I understand how much these matches mean to the QPR fans. We have to play on the front foot.

“For me personally, I live in west London and I love the rivalry. You have to be up for these special occasions.”
