QPR were beaten 1-0 at Stoke on Saturday to leave them rock-bottom of the Premier League, having failed to win any of their opening 11 games, losing seven.

Rangers owner Tony Fernandes has continued to back Hughes despite the club's torrid start and Argentinian midfielder Faurlin believes the boss is doing everything he can to turn things around.

He told The Sun: "The gaffer and his staff are doing everything to help us perform.

"Throughout the preparation and at half-time in the games, he is always positive and showing how much he believes in us.

"We're all disappointed we've not repaid that faith and are determined to put it right."

Faurlin says next weekend's home clash against fellow strugglers Southampton will be crucial for QPR ahead of their visit to Manchester United the following week.

"It is a real cup final for us, and we must stand up to the challenge and make sure we do enough to win," he said.

"There's a lot riding on it, particularly with a trip to Manchester United coming up the week after."

Faurlin added: "We're professionals and capable of turning things round, so we must keep working to that end. Every game is like a final for us."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
