Arteta rescues Arsenal in tight win

Mikel Arteta's 84th-minute goal saw Arsenal beat bottom club Queens Park Rangers 1-0 in the Premier League on Saturday to snap a two-game losing streak and crown Jack Wilshere's comeback with victory.

Beaten by Norwich City and Schalke in their last two outings, Arsene Wenger’s side looked destined for a third disappointing result in a row until Arteta finally found a way past QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar.
