QPR winger Shaun Wright Phillips has said that he was left devastated by the way in which he was responsible for Arsenal’s late goal in the match between the two clubs.

QPR managed to restrict Arsenal from scoring in the match between the two clubs at Emirates Stadium recently but Robin van Persie scored the only goal to give Arsenal all three points lae in the game.

It’s only increased the pressure on QPR manager Neil Warnock, who has seen his side go without a win in the last seven matches. His future has become bleak at the Loftus Road.

QPR winger Shaun Wright Phillips, who was signed for just as little as £ 3 million in the summer from Manchester City, has said that he was solely responsible for the goal they conceded, which helped Van Persie overtake Thierry Henry’s record of 34 goals in one calendar year with Arsenal.

Wright Phillips conceded possession too cheaply, which was taken advantage by Arsenal winger Andre Arshavin. The Russian passed the ball to Robin van Persie, who slotted the ball past the advancing goalkeeper. Even though the Dutchman was unable to pass the record set by Alan Shearer back in 1995, the joy of having passed the record set by Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

“Shaun Wright-Phillips is devastated, which is harsh of the lad as he had a great game, and could even have won it for us down at the other end. It was a terrible goal for to concede from our point of view, but that’s the fine line between winning and losing at Premier League level. But we came here positively with four forwards and tried to win the game,” QPR manager Neil Warnock said after the match.

According to the latest online Premier League betting, QPR still remain one of the favourites to avoid relegation, but they need to get more points on the board, sooner rather than later.
