The Brazilian emerged off the bench to find the net in the 85th minute, but a strike from former Gunner Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, his second of the afternoon, swung the game back in QPR’s favour.
Carl Jenkinson scored a rare goal as West Ham United drew 2-2 with Sunderland. The right-back, who played the full game, found the net after latching onto Victor Moses’ ball in. Jenkinson was later booked for a challenge on Billy Jones.
Emiliano Martinez kept a clean sheet and made several impressive saves as Wolverhampton Wanderers beat Huddersfield Town 3-0. The Argentinean shot-stopper did particularly well to deny Mustapha Carayol and Dean Whitehead.
Chuba Akpom was introduced as a 74th minute substitute as Hull City beat Nottingham Forest 1-0. The striker was on the receiving end of a challenge from Matt Mills, which earned the Forest player a red card. Isaac Hayden wasn’t involved.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles started and created several chances as Ipswich Town lost 2-0 to Blackburn Rovers. The winger was substituted in the 59th minute, however, after picking up a yellow card.
Dan Crowley was brought on in the 80th minute of Barnsley’s 2-1 defeat to Doncaster Rovers.
Jon Toral was an un-used substitute as Birmingham City beat Leeds United 2-0.
Serge Gnabry wasn’t included in West Bromwich Albion’s matchday squad for their 2-0 defeat to Crystal Palace. The winger has played just twelve minutes of Premier League football this season.
Gedion Zelalem wasn’t involved as Rangers beat Falkirk 3-1 in the Scottish Championship as the midfielder is currently away with the United States U23 squad.
Wojciech Szczesny played the whole game as Roma beat Palermo 4-2. Yaya Sanogo wasn’t involved as Ajax lost 2-1 to PSV.
