Arsenal head to relegated Queens Park Rangers on Saturday looking to climb above Chelsea and into third place in the Premier League table.

QPR will welcome Bobby Zamora back from his three-match ban for the visit of the Gunners this weekend.

Rangers could still be without on-loan Tottenham man Andros Townsend (hamstring) and Christopher Samba (knee), although the latter has a late fitness test.

Shaun Wright-Phillips (ankle) and Andrew Johnson (knee) will miss the remainder of the season, both having undergone surgery.

Arsenal will again be without suspended striker Olivier Giroud for Saturday's trip to Loftus Road.

Theo Walcott, who scored against Manchester United, and Lukas Podolski are both pressing for a central attacking role.

Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski (rib) remains sidelined, while midfielder Abou Diaby (knee) is a long-term absentee.
