Adel Taarabt
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.
