Warnock pleased with QPR performance in Arsenal defeat

QPR boss Neil Warnock was satisfied with their performance in defeat to Arsenal.

Warnock admitted he may be able to bring a new signing in before Monday's match with Norwich and was quick to praise his side's performance at the Emirates Stadium.

"I am obviously pleased with how we played," he said.

"We came with four forwards and tried to have a go at them really. I thought we were well organised and wanted to create chances. We didn't just want to come and shut up shop and hope for a 0-0 draw, believe it or not. We wanted to win the game.

"I thought we had some good chances throughout. You can accept if you lose to a cracking goal but it is a terrible goal from our point of view. Poor old Shaun Wright-Phillips is distraught [after giving away the ball that led to the goal] and yet he has had a fabulous game.

"I thought he was a threat all afternoon and I feel sorry for them. He made a mistake, but at the other end he could have won us the game. That is the fine line at Premier League level.

"You give Van Persie a chance like that and Christmas has come early for him really."
