Emmanuel-Thomas joined QPR in the summer transfer window, after his contract expired at Bristol City, and he has made an immediate impression at Loftus Road.
And Hill says that the attacker reminds him of Adel Taraabt, through his ability to create the extraordinary out of the seemingly innocuous.
“He’s got a bit of everything,” he said. “And, on his day, he could be unplayable.
“I don’t want to put him in that high regard, but he’s like an Adel [Taraabt] kind of player. He can do something any minute and make something happen.
“He’s done a great job defensively and offensively for us.”
Emmanuel-Thomas’ ability to create something out of nothing was highlighted in the R’s 3-0 win over Milton Keynes Dons.
The 24-year-old scored during the contest, when he took the ball down in the area, before rounding three defenders and then prodding home.
That was his fifth goal in eight matches, and the powerful forward has given Chris Ramsey a selection dilemma for the future, due to his good form.
Emmauel-Thomas got his chance in the R’s line-up due to an injury to Charlie Austin, but with the striker returning to fitness, it remains to be seen whether the former Bristol City man will keep his place.
