Thomas Vermaelen feels Arsenal fans can be excited about next season.

Vermaelen says the manner of their second-half of the season gives hope for next term.

"In some games we have shown a lot of quality and we can compete with everybody," he said.

"You have to be consistent in the league and sometimes that's not been the case for us, but we will try to do that better next year. I am confident we can do that."
