Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was delighted with their 1-0 win over QPR.

The victory came courtesy of a Theo Walcott goal after just 20 seconds and it lifted Arsenal, who have won six and drawn two of their last eight league games, two points ahead of Tottenham and Chelsea into third place.

Asked how much pressure Arsenal's triumph now places on Chelsea, Wenger said: "I don't know how much but it puts you under pressure because you have to make a result.

"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."
