Arsenal take on QPR at the Emirates in a Boxing Day London Derby. QPR have yet to pick up a solitary point on their travels this season. If Harry Redknapp's men cant change this then they will be relegated. Nine losses on the road this season but seventeen points picked up at home. Charlie Austin has been spectacular for QPR this season with eleven goals in fifteen games. While its possible that Zamora, Fer and Vargas can contribute at the moment Austin looks the only chance for QPR to survive this season. Harry Redknapp though has been in more relegation battles than most managers and if anyone can get things to turn around it is Redknapp.
Arsenal dropped two points last week against Liverpool after leading the game going into extra time, again Arsenal capitulated when leading. Arsene Wenger knows his defence must do better and is not blind to the fact so there is a chance Arsenal must buy in January to cover the defence. With Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud and Danny wellbeck there is plenty of attacking talent in Arsenal's squad and with Cazorla in the midfield there is lots of creativity. Sanchez quick adaption to the Premier League has been tremendous and he is the key man for the Gunners as all Arsenal fans know this season.
Good game here in store but impossible to look past Arsenal especially with QPR having picked up no points away from home. Im not sure how this game plays out though. I think QPR can cause trouble for Arsenal at the back, well basically anyone can cause problems for Arsenal at the back so Charlie Austin should get chances and if he does I think he will score. So I am taking the overs here as I think Arsenal win but QPR get on the scoresheet.
