Three facts about QPR:
- Arsenal have only ever lost one Barclays Premier League match on Boxing Day (W11 D5 L1).
- QPR have won none of their three Premier League games played on Boxing Day (W0 D1 L2).
- Arsenal have scored exactly one goal in eight of their last nine Premier League games against QPR, with the exception being the 3-0 win on Boxing Day 1995.
Charlie Austin QPRSTAR MAN
QPR struggled to pick up points at the start of the season but have recently found form after getting the best out Charlie Austin. This is the 25-year-old striker’s first season in the Premier League but he has already claimed 11 goals and two assists in 15 appearances. The former Wessex League player is a natural goalscorer and will be one to watch carefully on Friday.
