Reports in the Daily Mail carry quotes from the Arsenal manager, whose side face QPR, West Ham and Southampton over the festive period. The Gunners currently sit sixth in the Premier League table, and Wenger wants more consistency.
“We have to make sure that over Christmas we take advantage of the schedule we have and put the performances in,” Wenger said.
“We have a good opportunity over Christmas to show that we are much better than people think we are. Every team has difficult games, so it is the consistency in that period that will matter.”
QPR have yet to register an away point this season, but Wenger refuses to take victory at the Emirates Stadium on Friday for granted.
“We expect a QPR with nothing to lose. They will come and have a go at us,” Wenger said. “You focus on your own performance and don’t expect any weakness from your opponent. In the Premier League every game is difficult and you just want to turn up.
“We played QPR two years ago and they were very difficult games. West Ham at the moment are in very good shape. We go away to Southampton, which is a very difficult as well. Again, it’s down to our performances.”
