Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists his side have the momentum in the race for a Champions League place.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has insisted that his side are up for the fight to land a Champions League place.

The Frenchman believes that his team have the momentum after the 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

Wenger lauded his side's efforts in recent weeks and claimed that the pressure is now on their rivals to pick up the points.

"I don't know how much but it puts you under pressure because you have to make a result," Wenger told reporters. "We are up for it. We are ready for a fight and the team is highly focused to do it. We are on a very strong run.

"We definitely have a momentum, if you look at the points we have made compared to two months ago. We are going for it and we make the points.

"Away from home recently we have won everywhere - at Fulham, at Sunderland, at Swansea, at QPR. Derbies are difficult to win."

The Gunners currently sit in third place, although both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have games in hand.
