A Robin van Persie double condemned Norwich to a second successive Barclays Premier League defeat as they went down 2-1 to Arsenal at Carrow Road. It was only the second home loss the Canaries have suffered since their return to the top flight, although they have now won just once in six matches. Paul Lambert's side picked up four points from QPR last season as they finished runners-up to the west London side in the Championship.
QPR moved up to ninth in the Barclays Premier League following a 3-2 victory over Stoke at the Britannia Stadium. It was their third away win in the Barclays Premier League this season and ended a run of two straight defeats for Neil Warnock's side. But last season's Championship winners have failed to score in their last three meetings with Norwich, having won just once at Carrow Road in their last 11 trips.
Norwich: L W D D L L
QPR: L D W L L W
• Three of QPR's four league wins to date have come in away matches. Only Manchester City (five), Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool (all four) have won more.
