The capital outfit have yet to get going this season, and sit bottom of the table as a result.

Just two victories have been secured in 21 fixtures so far, leaving them five points adrift of safety.

Results to this point would suggest that QPR are heading back to the Championship, but Ben Haim is confident the tide can be turned.

The experienced defender has linked up with Harry Redknapp's side on a short-term deal and sees no reason why they cannot complete the Great Escape.

"I don't think any team has done it before," Ben Haim told Sky Sports News HD.

"People say West Brom, but West Brom did it with the same manager for the whole year.

"Here they changed the manager and he has a squad that he didn't pick. He has taken that squad, which is new to him, and if he keeps them in the Premier League, I think that would be a massive achievement - the best ever in the Premier League.

"It is definitely possible, but it's going to be very hard. We are ready for the challenge."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
