Barkley has everything says Hoops boss Harry.

QPR boss Harry Redknapp knows Ross Barkley will be a major threat to his side's ambition of claiming their first away points of the season tonight.

The Hoops hope to edge away from the relegation zone when they face Everton at Goodison tonight.

Redknapp said: "Barkley is top class and one the most exciting players in the Premier League.

"He has everything - great ability, good physique, he's strong and runs with the ball.

"He's a real top young player."

Meanwhile, Redknapp will welcome Adel Taarabt back into his squad - but only once the Moroccan playmaker has proved his fitness.

The pair fell out in October after Redknapp claimed Taarabt was "three stones overweight", prompting the gifted but erratic forward to respond by saying he was being used as a scapegoat for the club's poor start to the season.

The 25-year-old has not played since because of a groin strain and has made just three Premier League appearances after returning from a six-month loan spell at AC Milan over the summer.

But Redknapp insists he has no plans to offload him in the January transfer window.

The QPR boss said: "I don't look that far ahead to January 1, I just want Adel to get fit and start playing football. If he's fit he's back in he squad, I've told him that."
