Opta Stats: QPR v Arsenal

4May 2013

England - Premier League


QPR were relegated last weekend. Will that be good news or bad news for an Arsenal side that are still chasing points to finish in the top four?


Arsenal have scored exactly one goal in seven of their last eight Barclays Premier League meetings with Queens Park Rangers. A 1-0 Arsenal win can be backed at 8.8.


The Gunners have never won at Loftus Road in the Premier League era (D3 L2). They have played more away games against QPR without a win than any other side in the history of the competition. You can lay an Arsenal win at 1.45.


Overall, only against Manchester United (26%) do the Gunners have a lower Premier League win rate than they do against the R's (27%). The draw is available at 5.1.


Arsenal had 22 shots (including blocked shots) in the reverse meeting with QPR, but only found the net once; in the 84th minute. A QPR clean sheet is priced at 9.2.


Only Manchester United (2.09) have a better points per game average in May than QPR (1.83) in Premier League history. The relegated side are 8.8 to record a victory now that the pressure is off.


QPR have now gone 275 minutes (four hours and 35 minutes) without scoring in the Premier League. An Arsenal clean sheet is 2.26.


The R's have the worst record in Premier League London derbies this season (nine points), while only Chelsea (17) have won more points from them than Arsenal (16). Arsenal are 1.44 to win the match.


Arsenal have won their last three away league games. They have not won four in a row on the road since November 2010. The Gunners are 2.4 to win to nil.


QPR are the only team in the Premier League this season yet to win a point with a goal in the final 10 minutes. You can back Arsenal to win half-time/full-time at 2.14.


Aaron Ramsey has had more shots without scoring than any other player in the Premier League (39, including blocked shots). Ramsey is 4.8 to finally end his drought.
