Sports Mole previews Arsenal's trip to relegated Queens Park Rangers.

Arsenal travel to relegated Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, looking for a victory to keep up their pursuit of a Champions League place.

The Gunners head to Loftus Road as the Premier League's form team, having won five and drawn two of their last seven league games.

Last weekend's 1-1 draw with Manchester United leaves them fourth in the table, two points clear of rivals Tottenham Hotspur, who have a game in hand.

Arsenal will be confident of continuing their unbeaten run against a QPR side who had their relegation confirmed last week after a goalless draw at Reading.

Harry Redknapp's men will be playing for pride when they face Arsenal, however Rangers have won just two of their 17 home games this season.

QPR defender Christopher Samba should return after being left out of the squad for the trip to Reading, while on-loan Spurs midfielder Andros Townsend may also return after his hamstring injury.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud misses out through suspension so boss Arsene Wenger may be tempted to pick the same XI which started against Manchester United last Sunday.
