Arsenal v QPR preview: An easy pick-me-up for the Gunners?

Arsenal bid to get back on the winning trail when they play host to QPR at the Emirates, and they looks worthy odds-on shots at 1.36 with bet365 and Paddy Power to do just that.
The Gunners were poor in midweek when losing 2-0 at home to Schalke in the Champions League and their last appearance in the Premier League saw them beaten 1-0 by Norwich at Carrow Road.
However their form on their own patch in the top-flight has been solid, and they face a side who have yet to win in the league this season and currently sit rock bottom of the table.
Arsene Wenger will have to field a side without the threat of Theo Walcott who is remains on the sidelines, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is another whose participation hangs in the balance.
However they do have plenty of attacking options in the shape of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, and it’s the latter that appeals most to net the opener.
The Frenchman has taken time to adjust to life in the Premier League since his more from Montpelier, but his aerial presence in the box could cause all sorts of problems for Mark Hughes’ men.
He is 5 chance with bet365 in the first goalscorer market and also makes plenty of appeal at 2 with Boylesports to score anytime.
Given that Rangers have conceded in every away game this season, it’s hard not see Arsenal putting at least one past them and there is every possibility that the Gunners will also be able to keep a clean sheet.
The 2.5 on offer with Paddy Power for Arsenal to win to nil certainly looks on the big side, especially with one firm going as short as 1.95.
I am going to take the Gunners to win by a comfortable 2-0 scoreline, and that is an 8 chance with bet365.

    We will piss in our pants again is my bet! And this will be the count down to number 4 on the table. Our problem, you know, is not the big 4. It is the small 10. We happen to loose foolishly against them!
