The Cottagers are coming off a 4-1 home defeat to Sunderland and have the unenviable task of taking on the high-flying Gunners at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
Moroccan playmaker Taarabt, who is on loan from QPR, feels it will help the southwest London club if they head to the north of the capital thinking they can win.
"When we play big teams we have to go there and try and get points," he told the club's official website.
"If we get one point then great, but why not try and get three? We have nothing to lose.
"Arsenal will be the favourites but in this league anything can happen and that’s how we have to approach the game."
