Three facts about QPR:
- They only stayed in the Premier League on the final day of last season
- The club won the Championship title in 2010/11
- QPR beat Arsenal 2-1 the last time the teams met
The enigmatic playmaker is beginning to fulfill his undoubted ability this season, with two spectacular goals already to his name. Taarabt was voted the Championship's best player as he helped fire QPR to promotion in 2010/11 and also scored against Arsenal at Loftus Road last season. Sure to cause problems on his day, he will be a worry for the Gunners' backline.
