QPR vs Arsenal – Match Prediction
Arsenal to win 3-1, although you can go with point spread QPR +1 Arsenal have been in impressive form in the league off-late winning 6 out of their last 7 matches. Last Sunday on the back of a embarrassing 3-1 defeat against Monaco in the Champions League they eased past Everton with a 2-0 win.Arsenal should do the same here against a QPR team that can’t buy a win at the moment.
Queens Park Rangers
QPR should be well rested heading into this match after their match on Sunday was postponed because their opponents Spurs had league Cup commitments.
Rangers’ last league game saw them lose to fellow relegation candidates Hull City 2-1 away. They have lost five of their last six matches with the one win coming against Sunderland.
They are currently 18th in the table but has two games in hand compared to Aston Villa in 17th. A win here as unlikely as it is will move them out of the relegation spots.
QPR will be boosted by the news that midfielder Sandro who has been out since November should be fit again after recovering from an knee injury. They will be further boosted by the news that Nedum Onuoha and Mauricio Isla are also nearing return to action.
