QPR 1-2 Arsenal: Vote for Player-Ratings/MotM

Arsenal fended off a strong first half from QPR to go into halftime in a scoreless tie, but shortly after halftime, Giroud scored, pouncing on a rebound from a Gibbs shot, to score his fifth goal in as many games. Barely five minutes later, Alexis shivved his way through two defenders to beat Green at the near post to make it 0-2. From there, QPR seemed to fade until Charlie Austin found a goal with eight minutes to create a mirror image of the opposite fixture when we defeated the Hoops 2-1, again with Austin netting. Little shame in that as the man has found the back of the net some 15 times to date. At any rate, the result is what counts, and it's enough to keep us in third for a little while longer as we prepare to face Man U in the FA Cup on Monday. Everyone else around us won, so the table remains unchanged. More on that later. For now, get to the poll and rate our players!
