BBC Sport - Arsenal 2-1 QPR: Harry Redknapp blames 'criminal defending' for defeat

Criminal defending cost QPR - Redknapp

QPR manager Harry Redknapp says "criminal defending" was to blame for his side's 2-1 defeat to Arsenal.

Charlie Austin's 79th-minute penalty set up a dramatic finale against Arsenal's 10 men, but Redknapp's side were unable to breach the Gunners' defence for a second time.

The defeat means QPR are the second team to lose their opening nine away games in a Premier League season, after Bolton in 1995-96.
