Queens Park Rangers-Arsenal
Barclays Premier League
Kick off: March 4th, 2015 1945 GMT
With the important win against Everton secured, it is time for us to pick up some points on the road. QPR is a relatively easy fixture and we should easily pick up the three points today. However, the team selection is overshadowed by the two massive upcoming fixtures and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is looking to rotate his players effectively to be at full strength against Manchester United over the weekend.
This time around, the defence sees Mertesacker paired up with Gabriel in the center, with Koscielny rested for the weekend. Rosicky is also handed a rare start in place of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with the rest of the team remaining unchanged. Walcott and Welbeck find themselves on the bench for the second game in a row.
Among the substitutes we also have the returning Aaron Ramsey; hopefully he will be able to get in a run today.
