Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen has issued a rallying cry to the rest of his team-mates as the club hunt for a top four finish.

The club-captain has been dropped for the last few matches, but he started in the latest game against Norwich City which the side went on to win 3-1 after coming from behind in the final ten minutes.

The win lifted the Gunners into third place above London rivals Tottenham and Chelsea, as all three clubs hunt for Champions League football next season.

The victory over Norwich was Arsenal's fifth straight win since their morale boosting victory in the Allianz Arena in the Champions League back in February - a game where they beat German champions, Bayern Munich 2-0.

The win in Germany came after a string of poor performances for the Gunners and since the victory they haven't looked back producing some great displays and picking up vital points along the way.

Vermaelen was re-called for the Norwich game because of Per Mertesacker's suspension, after he was sent off during the side's 2-1 victory away at West Bromwich Albion and the club captain has called upon his team-mates to carry on their impressive form ahead of their crunch tie with Everton.

The Gunners captain told Arsenal player: "We are on a run now. We have got a good momentum at the moment. 

"We are winning a lot of games.

"Tuesday is an important game again at home so we have to keep fighting and try to get three points."
