Arsenal captain Vermaelen: We fear no-one
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."
