QPR striker Djibril Cisse will begin his four-match ban in the game.

The France international was sent off at former club Sunderland last weekend and is joined on the sidelines by Armand Traore, who is a week away from returning from a hamstring injury.

Long-term absentees DJ Campbell (hamstring) and Heidar Helguson (knee) are making good progress, but are not yet ready for a first-team return.

Arsenal will have centre-half Laurent Koscielny available following a knee problem.

Midfielder Abou Diaby (hamstring) is not expected to be back in contention, but like Francis Coquelin (hamstring) is close to match fitness.

Centre-back Per Mertesacker (ankle) and midfielder Jack Wilshere (ankle) remain sidelined.

QPR (from): Kenny, Cerny, Murphy, Young, Gabbidon, Onuoha, Ferdinand, Taiwo, Hall, Hill, Derry, Diakite, Barton, Buzsaky, Taarabt, Smith, Mackie, Wright-Phillips, Hulse, Bothroyd, Zamora.

Arsenal (from): Szczesny, Sagna, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Song, Arteta, Rosicky, Walcott, Gervinho, van Persie, Fabianski, Gibbs, Djourou, Santos, Jenkinson, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Benayoun, Chamakh.
