Taarabt is confident that with home advantage they can pull off another shock.
"We hope we can give them (the fans) another big performance," Taarabt told the club's official website.
"I'm happier when we play at home. I feel better when we play at Loftus Road than I do when we play away.
"I feel the fans are really behind me. When we played against Liverpool they were fantastic - with me and the team as well. We need them, that's for sure - and I hope we can stay in this league."
