QPR midfielder Faurlin: Chelsea derby nothing serious

QPR midfielder Alejandro Faurlin says the derby against Chelsea is a walk in the park to what he experienced in Argentina.

Faurlin takes his place in the side to face London rivals ­Chelsea today but insists the ­rivalry is nothing in ­comparison to back home.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "I know this rivalry means a lot to the fans, but I grew up in Argentina and my team was Rosario Central.

"The derby was against Newell Old Boys, and I'm telling you that is a real derby. Every time they play they want to kill each other!

"I went as a fan to those games so this is probably tame in comparison."
