Adel Taarabt: Swansea City must hate playing against me
ADEL Taarabt reckons Swansea City will be dreading the prospect of facing him when they kick off the new season at Queens Park Rangers.
Swansea have never won at Loftus Road, and their last two visits to Rangers have been especially miserable.
Swansea were thrashed 4-0 in West London during their Championship promotion season and produced their worst display of last term as they went down 3-0 against the Hoops back in April.
Taarabt bagged two goals in the second-tier thumping and he impressed again last spring as Brendan Rodgers's side failed to turn up.

"I can't wait to get started and it's nice that we start with Swansea as I have a good record against them," the midfielder creator said.
"They must hate playing against me and will probably be sick of the sight of me.
"They do play very good football, but that just seems to bring the best out of my game."
Swansea midfielder Leon Britton, meanwhile, admits Michael Laudrup's men are due a performance at QPR.
"I think we definitely owe the fans one," he said. "It was probably our worst performance of last season up there, but it's going to be a tough game because they have made a lot of signings."
