QPR captain Clint Hill has vowed to make it hard for Manchester United’s ‘superstars’ ahead of

Sunday’s clash at Old Trafford.

The R’s defender admitted to feeling nervous at the prospect of facing Louis van Gaal’s side.

He said: “You watch these players on TV, in World Cups and you think wow, what a player. To actually come up against them is quite unbelievable.

“It can cause you a few sleepless nights.

After Manchester United’s poor start to the season QPR are ahead of them in the Premier League table, but Hill stressed his newly-promoted side are still a longshot to bring home the points.

The Red Devils strengthened their squad in the transfer window with big-name signings such as Radamel Falcao.

Hill said: “They’re in a much better position than they were a few weeks ago.

“Every club that comes up is going to be underdogs for that season. It’s a challenge you need to rise to and hopefully they have an off day and you have a very good day.

“It rewards all the hard work that we went through last season, grinding the Championship out.

These are the games you look forward to.”

The 35-year-old also paid tribute to new signing Sandro, who joins from Tottenham for a fee reported to be in the region of £10m.

Hill said: “He’s been brilliant. His work ethic on the training ground, his bubbly character off the pitch, I think he’s fitted in really well. He’s a very important signing for us.”
