Walcott fires early Gunners winner

Theo Walcott struck his 20th goal of the season after 20 seconds as Arsenal beat relegated QPR 1-0 to return to third place in the Barclays Premier League.

Arsenal's quickest Premier League goal and the swiftest of the season - surpassing efforts by Robin van Persie - secured Arsene Wenger's side a straightforward win over hapless QPR, who are now without a goal in four games and six hours.

Loic Remy was denied by a fine Wojciech Szczesny save as the Gunners held on for a fifth successive away win saw to move two points clear of Chelsea, having played two games more, and Tottenham, who play at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
