QPR midfielder Alejandro Faurlin: Two years ago I was in the Argentine Second Division

QPR midfielder Alejandro Faurlin admits he's pinching himself over this success in the Premier League so far this season.

Faurlin has looked very much at home in the Premier League, passing intelligently in a holding role in midfield and getting forward to good effect too. It is a big leap for someone who was playing at such a lower level so recently.

He told the Daily Mail: "Two years ago I was playing in the second division in Argentina and now I'm playing in the Premier League - the best league in the world. I've got to enjoy it as much as possible.

"Yes I have dreams but now it's about making sure I'm in the starting XI so I can get more experienced in the Premier League. Football's crazy - you never know what is going to happen to you next.

And Faurlin partly puts his good form down to finally getting a grip with the language.

"I wouldn't want to be put in front of a camera quite yet but I can talk to people. Neil's accent was really difficult for me to understand at first but now I can more or less understand all my team-mates."
