Wenger wary of QPR threat

Arsene Wenger believes that Queens Park Rangers will still prove to be a threat, despite them already having been relegated to the Championship.

The two sides meet at Loftus Road tomorrow afternoon, with the Gunners desperate for the points as they try to cement their place in the top four.

Harry Redknapp’s sides fate was sealed following last weekend’s 0-0 draw with Reading, a result which confirmed both teams exit from the Premier League.

However, the Arsenal manager has said that facing teams with nothing to play for “can be very dangerous”, whilst commenting on the competitive nature of the three or four Rangers games he has witnessed this season.

The Gunners will once again be without Olivier Giroud as he continues the suspension he collected at Fulham a fortnight ago, so Theo Walcott and Lukas Podolski are both pressing for a central attacking role.

Lukasz Fabianski remains side-lined, so Wojciech Szczesny is set to continue in goal, while Abou Diaby is a long term absentee.

Arsenal are in good form, having won seven of their last ten games, and victory here would see them climb to third place above Chelsea, who travel to Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
