Sagna back in contention
Full-back Bacary Sagna could return to the Arsenal squad for their Premier League clash against QPR after recovering from a broken leg.
England midfielder Jack Wilshere also played for the under-21s earlier in the week and may be on the bench as he continues his rehabilitation from ankle and knee injuries.
Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hip) faces a fitness test, but defender Kieran Gibbs (thigh) and forward Theo Walcott (chest) remain sidelined, along with first-choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny (ankle), midfielder Abou Diaby (thigh) and Czech winger Tomas Rosicky (hamstring).
The Gunners fans will be expecting nothing less than all three points against the struggling R's, particularly as the match comes at the end of a difficult week which has seen Arsene Wenger's side beaten by Norwich and Schalke.
