Thank you for joining me today. Be sure to stick around on Bleacher Report for full coverage and analysis of this weekend's Premier League fixtures. I'll be writing up my thoughts on this particular fixture shortly. Cheers all!
ANALYSIS: Ultimately, it's Mbia's red card that changed this game. Hughes needs to give him some stern words in the dressing room, as the visitors looked good for a point before they went down to 10.
ANALYSIS: Wenger will be reasonably happy with how his team played in the second half. It looks as if Arteta was offside from the goal—exactly the kind of luck QPR are receiving right now.
90+3'—Arsenal deal with QPR's pressure. The ball eventually drops to Wenger's men.
90+2'—WHAT A CHANCE! Mackie runs through the Arsenal defence and fires his shot straight at Mannone.
FIVE MINUTES OF ADDED TIME TO BE PLAYED
89'—HUGE CHANCE! Granero runs onto a long pass and has a sight at goal. He drags his shot to Mannone's right side and wide of the post.
89'—SAVE! Cesar gets down low to stop a Cazorla shot hitting the back of the net.
87'—YELLOW CARD! Dissent from Taarabt shortly before Ramsey has a decent half-volley saved by Cesar.
86'—Arsenal continue to stretch QPR. The red card has made a huge difference to this game.
83'—GOAL ARSENAL! Arteta scrambles the ball into the net after two more stunning saves from Cesar.
81'—CHANCE! A crazy two minutes as Cesar makes an amazing save. The ball floated into the box and eventually cannoned off Onouha. The goalkeeper was sloppy in the first half, but has saved his team here.
ARSENAL SUB: Gervinho needs treatment and is replaced by Arshavin.
79'—RED CARD! Stephane Mbia is given his marching orders for lashing out after he conceded a free kick. Is this the turning point?
78'— QPR SUB: Mackie on for Wright-Phillips.
76'—CHANCE! Cazorla skies an excellent chance in the area. Walcott's cross is knocked down to the Spaniard who cannot finish. The goal was gaping! QPR just putting a wall in the way of Arsenal's attack.
74'—Both sides desperately need to win this game. Walcott is providing a few decent runs, but everything is a little lethargic for the hosts.
71'— QPR SUBS: Onuoha replaces Traore and Cisse comes on for Zamora.
71'—Gervinho's first action is a poor shot into the side netting.
70'—ARSENAL SUB: Poldolski makes way for Gervinho.
Wright-Phillips plays a terrible pass straight to Walcott, who attacks with pace. Traore cuts the danger out.
68'— Arsenal sustain pressure and push QPR back into their box. The ball eventually falls to Arteta who wildly shoots over.
66'— ARSENAL SUB: Wilshere is replaced by Walcott.
65'—CHANCE FOR QPR! Vermaelen beats Zamora to the header! The Englishman had a real chance to win that.
63'—A lull in the game as QPR slow things down. Traore returns to the pitch.
60'—YELLOW CARD! Giroud receives a yellow for the challenge. Traore hobbles off the pitch.
