Queens Park Rangers vs. Arsenal: Preview and TV schedule

Shaun Botterill

Queens Park Rangers are already relegated, and will be playing for pride -- and to dent Arsenal's hopes of making the top four -- at Loftus Road on Saturday.

Queens Park Rangers' dismal goalless draw against Reading last weekend aptly epitomised a dismal season for the Hoops, confirming their relegation from the Premier League. It means their remaining games will be attempts to salvage any pride left, starting this weekend against Arsenal.

The Gunners are still chasing qualification for the Champions League, and maintain a two-point buffer over North London rivals Tottenham inside the top four -- albeit with Spurs having a game in hand. Arsène Wenger's side haven't lost in their last eight games in all competitions, and will be expecting a win to maintain their slim advantage here.

QPR have Bobby Zamora back from a three-match ban after he was sent off against Wigan, though both Shaun Wright-Phillips and Luke Young have been declared as unavailable for the rest of the season. Andros Townsend could return from his hamstring injury.

Arsenal have Olivier Giroud out due to suspension, while Abou Diaby and Ryo Miyaichi won't play again this season. Łukasz Fabiański is still unavailable.
