Arsenal hangs on for 2-1 win over EPL strugglers Queens Park Rangers

LONDON (AP) — Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez guided Arsenal to a 2-1 victory at Premier League struggler Queens Park Rangers on Wednesday.

Giroud's fifth goal in as many games came in the 64th minute before Sanchez ended a seven-game drought.


Charlie Austin set up a fraught finish for Arsenal by scoring with a fine 20-yard (meter) strike on the turn for QPR in the 82nd.

But Arsenal clung on for a 10th win in 12 games in all competitions to stay third in the league.
