Sports Mole previews this weekend's Premier League battle between Arsenal and Queens Park Rangers at the Emirates.

Arsenal will be desperate to overcome their recent dip in form, while Queens Park Rangers will continue searching for their first win of the season when the two clubs come together at the Emirates this Saturday.

The Gunners suffered a surprise 1-0 defeat to Norwich City last weekend, which was followed by a 2-0 loss to Schalke 04 in the Champions League.

Despite their recent slump, Arsenal sit just three points away from the top four in the league table, while Mark Hughes's QPR side remain at the bottom of the league after taking just three points from eight games.

Arsene Wenger is likely to add midfielder Jack Wilshere to his squad following his stint on the bench as an unused substitute against Norwich but the 20-year-old could get a run-out at some stage against QPR, while Bacary Sagna could also return after recovering from a broken leg.

Meanwhile, Hughes could opt for a forward partnership of Junior Hoilett and Bobby Zamora as the West London side continue to hunt for goals.

Recent form:

Arsenal: WDLWL
Queens Park Rangers: DLLLD

Possible starting lineups:

Arsenal: Mannone; Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Santos; Ramsey, Arteta, Cazorla; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gervinho, Podolski

Queens Park Rangers: Cesar; Bosingwa, Diakite, Nelsen, Traore; Mbia, Granero, Park, Taarabt; Zamora, Hoilett

Sports Mole says: 2-0
