Bailey remains the last player to score a league hat-trick against United.
“I still get reminded about the result and it was one of the high points for me,” Bailey, who plays for his local Church Renewal Christian Centre in Solihull, told the Sunday Mirror.
“It’s great to be told about it and to be held in such a regard by QPR fans. Can they do it again? The key will be Taarabt.
“He’s a real talent and he showed that every week in the Championship. He has shown it recently too and his goal against Arsenal is what he is all about.
“It can get nervy at this stage of the season and Taarabt can cause them problems as he’s capable of the unexpected.”
