Arsenal are now ready to attack the 31st matchday of the season and go head to head with QPR on away territory. The Lotfus Road stadium is well known for being one of the toughest grounds to win on, but Arsenal need to do so in order to keep a safe distance in front of arch rivals Tottenham.
The Betting odds are clearly in Arsenal’s favor after such an impressive run by the Gunners and they have a 1.57 odd of winning the match while QPR has a massive odd of 5.50 being seen as an underdog. The odds are also in favor of Arsenal’s skipper Robin Van Persie who has the best rate to score, with a 1.66 odd of putting the ball in the net against the less famous London side.
Wenger also seems to think that the Gunners are going to go all out in the weekend against QPR and that motivation is the key even though the odds are clearly in their favor.
“I see us fighting like mad to win the game. That is all I see, I don’t see further,” commented Wenger.
“We are focused on QPR, believe me. We know that is always a tricky game for everybody and that is what is important to us.
“QPR is a side which has quality players and is in a difficult situation.
“Certainly you expect them to fight not to go down, but I believe the key will be on our side – no matter what QPR’s quality or problem is, it will be important for us to go out and show how much we want another win.”
“Our sport is fragile and we have learned something this season from a very difficult period. Urgency and focus are vital to keep your level up.
“What we can hope for is to be third. We can be fourth, we can be fifth, we can be sixth, we want to be as high as possible and that depends on our consistency now.
“We are in a position that nobody expected us to be in and we want to strengthen that position from now on. That depends on our performances.”
We don’t know yet if Arsenal will win or not, but let’s hope that they will because it’d be a true shame for the Gunners to lose the third spot after fighting so hard for it, and after what happened last season this is the least they deserve after how much they worked to recover from last season’s disappointment and the summer transfer window, don’t you think so?
