Arsenal vs QPR
Venue – Emirates stadium
Date – 26th December 2014
Time – 11:00 PM IST
In yet another London Derby featured on the boxing day, Arsenal take on QPR in what promises to be goal rush contest. It is taken for granted that whenever Arsenal win, they win big. And when it is a home fixture, they always ensure that the fans go home delighted at what they’ve seen.
No wonder, the Pundits have gone on to predict big for this contest. Arsenal were unlucky last week to draw 2-2 away at Liverpool after their fine performance was dented by a 97th minute equalizer from defender Martin Skrtel. But this pretty much sums up Arsenal’s season so far. They have been both brilliant and erratic at times much to Wenger’s frustration and the Arsenal manager needs to rethink his strategy heading into the QPR tie.
QPR average a point a game and boss Harry Redknapp said that he was more than happy with the proceedings. The former Tottenham manager insists that all is well at QPR and they are taking one game at a time. The Rangers looked done for good after going 2-0 down to Wes Brom last week.
But a spirited fight back which included a clinical hat trick by striker Charlie Austin helped them salvage all 3 points. The England striker has found the back of the net eleven times this season and is currently third in the top scorers list. He will be a force the Arsenal defenders have to reckon with and Redknapp will pin his hopes on the former brick layer.

Key factors in the match:
Santi Cazorla seems to be the in form man for Arsenal contributing to five goals in his last five appearances for the Gunners. He is known for his clinical ball playing abilities and will love the prospect of attacking a lackluster QPR side at home.
