Vermaelen gunning for top four

Published Add your comment

Thomas Vermaelen is certain that Arsenal will qualify for the Champions League if they can keep repeating the kind of display that saw them rip apart AC Milan on Tuesday night.

Goals from Laurent Koscielny, Tomas Rosicky and captain Robin van Persie gave the Gunners a resounding 3-0 lead against the seven-time European champions, but they were unable to grab the fourth goal that would have taken the tie to extra-time and they bowed out of the competition.

Arsenal have suffered from woeful inconsistency all season - highlighted by their 4-0 first-leg defeat in Italy - but Vermaelen said: "If we can play like (we did last night), there is no way that we will not be in the top four. That performance will give us a boost now."
