The Gunners face QPR on Boxing Day, with several players available for selection after coming back from injury. David Ospina and Tomas Rosicky are definitely available for selection, while Theo Walcott could be ready for a place in the starting XI. However, Laurent Koscielny, Aaron Ramsey, and Mikel Arteta remain on the sidelines for now.
According to manager Harry Redknapp, QPR have too many players to list who will be assessed before the match. Yun Suk-Young is one who will definitely miss out with an ankle injury. Luckily for the R’s Charlie Austin should be fit for the match. The striker is now the highest scoring Englishman in the Premier League with eleven goals overall and nine in his last eight appearances.
Arsene Wenger will be hoping that his side will be able to take all three points from the fixture in order to keep the pressure on in the race for the top four. Meanwhile, QPR will be looking to try and get their first away point of the season, something they will have to do at some point if they are to have any chance of staying in the division after this campaign.
