QPR striker Djibril Cisse has no concerns about what lies ahead today against Chelsea.

While the authorities and some of his fellow players may have concerns about the mood inside the ground this afternoon, well-travelled Hoops hitman Cisse has no fears.

The former Liverpool, Marseille and Sunderland striker said: “I’ve experienced a lot worse.

“Do not get me wrong, the rivalry between QPR and Chelsea is very strong. They are our local rivals.

“It’s a derby and it’s a big game for us — bigger than most. It is without doubt one of the most important games of the season, for players and fans.

“But all the clubs I have played for have had big local derbies and, when it comes to bad behaviour on and off the pitch, this is not the worst.”
