Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has revealed that he believes this weekend's opposition Queens Park Rangers will be tougher than what people think.

QPR were relegated from the Premier League last weekend after they drew 0-0 with Reading, a result that wasn't enough for either of them to survive in the top league and Arsenal travel to Loftus Road this weekend.

Big teams have gone and failed to get all three points at QPR's home this season and Fabianski believes it will be even harder for Arsenal because of the connection the relegated-team have with Tottenham Hotspur.

The boss at Loftus Road is Harry Redknapp, who is the former manager of Arsenal's closest rivals, Tottenham and he was also joined at QPR by  his two assistants, Joe Jordan and Kevin Bond, who were also with him at White Hart Lane.

As well as the coaching staff, QPR also have the likes of; Adel Taarabt, Andros Townsend and Jermaine Jenas, all that have got a past with Spurs and that is why Arsenal's goalkeeper is worried that their weekend's opposition will be tougher than people think.

Fabianski told Arsenal Player: "For sure it will be a tough game. For them it will be the kind of game to give something back to the fans and show that they maybe didn't deserve to go down.

"I think most of their coaching staff have some relations with Tottenham so maybe they will to put out a team that mean we will drop points and help Spurs.

"It will be a tough game but looking at our away results from recent games, I think we're in a good position."

The Polish keeper will once again sit out of this weekend's game because of a rib injury picked up against Norwich City, but the shot-stopper is hopeful to return in time for the Wigan Athletic game.

He continued by saying: "I'm getting better, the rib is much better. There is less soreness and my mobility is better so I'm hoping maybe another week and I should be fully fit.

"I just need to hit the floor first. I didn't dive properly for two or three weeks. That will be the big answer for me if I'm ready or not."
