It's your gammmeeee threaddddddd, your lovely gammmeeeee threeeeaddddd...

Arsenal meander down to West London today for a matchup with relegation-threatened Queens Park Rangers. Aside from a hilarious win against Liverpool on the 21st, QPR have been struggling recently. Arsenal, on the other hand, have not. (Been struggling, that is). I am very tired. Let's get to the lineups.

QPR: Kenny, Diakite, Hill, Derry, Taarabt, Mackie, Barton, Taiwo, Ferdinand, Onuoha, Zamora. (via Arseblog).

QPR subs: Cerny, Gabbidon, Campbell, Bothroyd, Buzsaky, Young, Wright-Phillips.

Arsenal: Szczesny, Sagna, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Song, Arteta, Rosicky, Ramsey, Walcott, Van Persie.

Arsenal subs: Fabianski, Djourou, Santos, Benayoun, Gervinho, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chamakh.

So...Koscielny returns to the starting eleven, and Ramsey slides in at left in place of Gervinho. Watch that space to see how much he's drifting inside. Shaun Wright-Phillips--remember him?--starts on the bench for QPR.
