Arsenal bracing for back-to-back bogey teams, starting with QPR


By Brian Sears

26 October 2012

Arsenal have endured a turbulent week as their absentee American owner’s visit to London coincided with the club’s AGM and back-to-back defeats, first against Norwich in the Premier League and then against Schalke in Europe.

And now they face two Premier League matches versus the two current top-flight clubs against whom, historically, they have the worst Premier League records.

QPR are first, this weekend, at The Emirates, followed by Manchester United, at Old Trafford, on 3 November.

Arsenal have won an average of 1.1 points per game against both QPR and United – from 10 and 40 Premier League games respectively.

In their 10 Premier League games with QPR, Arsenal have won two, drawn five and lost three, winning just 11 points from a possible 30.

In 40 games with United they have won 44 points from a possible 120, also at a ratio of 1.1 per game.

Arsenal’s complete record, points-wise and club-by-club is shown below.

Arsenal have won maximum PL points from one club, Reading, with four wins from four. Reading, coincidentally, face the Gunners in the League Cup in between the QPR and United league games.
