London, Oct 27: Hit by back-to-back defeats, Gunners invite London rivals Queens Park Rangers at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
A week to forget for Arsene Wenger's side after losing away to Norwich City and at home to Schalke in the UEFA Champions League. Gunners' great run of form has come to a halt but are looking to end their losing streak against Rangers who are yet to win a game this season.
Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna could return to the squad after recovering from a broken leg but is unlikely to start despite playing for the U 21s.
England midfielder Jack Wilshere is back in training with the first team but is most likely to make the bench after playing for reserves.
Vito Mannone will continue at goal with injuries to first-choice Wojciech Szczesny and Lukasz Fabianski.
Meanwhile, QPR captain Park Ji-sung is a major doubt for the clash at the Emirates as the former Manchester United midfielder suffered a knee injury against Everton.
Full-back Fabio could return while striker Andy Johnson and Former Toon winger Kieron Dyer are sidelined.
