VIDEO: Arsenal 2-1 QPR: Sanchez & Rosicky Seal Scrappy Win
Arsenal had to hang on to secure a vital three points against Queens Park Rangers at the Emirates this evening.
Having missed an early penalty, Alexis Sanchez made amends after heading home from close range following a Gibbs cross in the 37th minute.
In a moment of madness, Giroud then got sent off after head butting Onuoha early in the second half but Rosicky soon made it 2-0 after being teed-up by Sanchez.
QPR were then gifted a way back into the game when the ref incorrectly awarded a penalty when he adjudged Debuchy to have fouled Hoilett, despite the Frenchman getting a touch on the ball. Austin made no mistake to make it 2-1 with 10 minutes left.
We held on despite some late pressure to seal a 2-1 victory. Watch the goals here:
