QPR manager Harry Redknapp is delighted to be working with Stephane Mbia, Esteban Granero and Samba Diakite.

The trio performed well against Sunderland and the 65-year-old believes it is a combination rival teams would not want to face.

“It was a midfield you wouldn’t want to play against,” he said.

“The two lads (Mbia and Diakite) are powerful and strong. They’re great athletes and I was very impressed with what I saw.

“Granero, the Spanish lad, is a very good footballer as he showed tonight.

“It was a nice blend.”
