0-1 Walcott 1′


The Gunners have failed to win their last six league games away at QPR (D4, L2), although they did beat Rangers 6-0 at Loftus Road in an FA Cup fourth-round tie in 2001.

Their last top-flight away win in this fixture was by 3-1 on 24 November 1990.

However, the Gunners did record Premier League wins at Loftus Road in 2002-03 and 2003-04, when Fulham were tenants at the stadium during the reconstruction of Craven Cottage.

The last time QPR were relegated from the Premier League (in 1995-1996) they took 15 seasons to get back to the top flight.

QPR have gone four hours and 35 minutes without scoring. If they are unable to score on Saturday it will be the first time they have failed to net in four successive top-flight games since a similar drought between August and September 1989.

They have taken just two points from their last six league matches.

QPR have the second best points-per-game average in May (1.83) in Premier League history. Only Manchester United (2.09) have a better record.


The Gunners are chasing a fifth successive away win in all competitions.

Arsenal are one of only two Premier League teams who have yet to lose after taking the lead this season. Manchester United are the other side with that record.

The Gunners have surrendered just six points from winning positions this term, the second best record in the top flight. In comparison, fellow Champions League hopefuls Chelsea and Tottenham have dropped 16 and 23 points respectively.

Arsenal have lost just one game against a side in the bottom half of the league table so far this season (against Norwich in October).

Theo Walcott is set to make his 200th league appearance in English football (including 21 games for Southampton).

No Premier League player has had as many shots as Aaron Ramsey (39) without scoring this season.
