Confirmed: QPR v Arsenal line-ups, Paulista starts

Arsenal take on QPR in a midweek Premier League clash.

Arsenal take on QPR hoping to keep up their winning run in the Premier League.

The Gunners have won five of their last six games, and have overtaken Manchester United to rise to third in the table.

They are now even looking at second placed Manchester City who are only four points in front. City host QPR's relegation rivals Leicester this evening.

QPR are looking for their first home win under new boss Chris Ramsey, but have already shown themselves a difficult side the play against at Loftus Road this season.

They need to get a result after seeing Aston Villa move three points in front of them, beating West Brom 2-1 last night.

QPR's home form is the 12th best in the league, but they are without a win in their last four matches at Loftus Road. A win over the Gunners would be huge for their season.
