Arsenal captain Vermaelen: We fear no-one

Arsenal captain ­Thomas Vermaelen insists they can handle their looming tough run of games.

After home ties against Norwich and Borussia Dortmund and an away trip to Crystal Palace, the Gunners face four huge games in the space of 13 days.

First, they host rivals Chelsea in the Capital One Cup before ­a home game in the Premier League against Liverpool, then they face the return clash against Dortmund in the ­Champions League and a visit to league champions Man United.

Vermaelen said: "That period will be a hard time for us and really intense - but that's why you come to play for a big club like Arsenal.

"You want to play in those kind of games, so to get four of those games in a row is something we have to look forward to."
