Tottenham attacker Clint Dempsey is looking forward to their clash with QPR.

Today Dempsey will come up against an ­opposition manager for whom he has immense respect in Mark Hughes, now in charge of QPR.

Dempsey played for Mark Hughes at ­Fulham and said: "He did a good job of treating everybody equally. He also showed in training that he could still score a goal!

"There were no favourites and that is what I liked about him as a ­manager."
