QPR star eager to repeat Chelsea glory
Onuoha returns to the ground where he won 3-0 with Sunderland
Nedum Onuoha is relishing the opportunity to silence Stamford Bridge again when QPR renew their rivalry with Chelsea on Sunday.
While Rangers have already seen off their west London foes once in the league this season, defender Onuoha also has happy memories of beating the Blues.
The 25-year-old’s last goal came for Sunderland back in November 2010, when the Black Cats stunned Carlo Ancelotti’s title challengers by storming to a 3-0 win.
Rangers head to the Kings Road this weekend knowing even a point could prove crucial in their battle to avoid relegation – and having failed to win at Chelsea in any competition since a League Cup quarter- final replay in 1986.
Onuoha says he would gladly swap another goal in order to help his side to a positive result, and he believes that Mark Hughes’s improving side have every chance of achieving an upset on Sunday.
“If we get something from the game and I don’t have a shot on goal I’ll be more than happy with that,” said Onuoha.

“That Sunderland game is a little while ago now, I just remember being really tired after the game. I’ve only won there once, although I’ve been involved in squads which have won there.
“Will one more win be enough to keep us up? It could be – but it might not be!
“Changes have happened on and off the pitch and I think with time understandings start to develop.
“Maybe that’s what it is and long may it continue. We are getting better but we’re not where we probably should be.”
