Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger praised Thomas Vermaelen's character after their 1-1 draw with Fulham.

Vermaelen scored both the game's goals.

Wenger told arsenal.com: "I believe he scored unfortunately [at his own end] - left-footed players many times refuse to play with their right foot. But he has shown enough character to come back and score a great goal. On crosses he is very good, he reads the ball well. Overall he had a very good game.

"It's unfortunate to drop two points today because overall I thought we did enough to win it."
