Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby says they cannot take Reading lightly this weekend.

Arsenal face Reading at Emirates Stadium on Saturday, and will be heavy favourites having won the previous two games between the clubs this season.

"It is very difficult [against teams near the bottom of the table]," he told Arsenal Player. "They are fighting against relegation, and we are fighting to be in the top four.

"We may be favourites, but we know it's not going to be an easy game. But if we can play our game, we know we can score goals."
