Harry Redknapp’s team were relegated along with Reading after drawing 0-0 at the Madejski Stadium last Sunday.

But Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham all failed to win at Loftus Road this season and Wenger says players will need to be at their best to take three points.

“In the Premier League, we watched their recent three or four games,” said Wenger. “All the games were tight, so we want to make sure that this little percentage goes for us. [We need] more focus, more determination.

“It can happen yes, that they play under less pressure, with less fear. It can be of course very dangerous.

“I still believe that the derby will be decided by the quality of our performance. If we continue to play like we do, we will make it and that’s what we focus on.”
