Arsenal fight impresses skipper Vermaelen

Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen was thrilled to see each and every member of the team fight tooth and nail for a draw on Wednesday night.

Theo Walcott scored for the Gunners in the opening minute of the 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park before the Toffees got on top after Marouane Fellaini’s 28th minute equalizer.

Vermaelen was full of praise for his Arsenal teammates for grinding out a result and suggests that the mindset of the squad is currently very strong.

"Mentality-wise, there is nothing wrong with the team," Vermaelen said on Arsenal Player.

"Everybody works hard and there is no-one who doesn't work for the team, and that will give you results, from that point of view I am very happy.

"In the first minute we scored a good goal, and after that we dominated, but gave them chances because we were a little bit sloppy with the ball, so that was a bit disappointing.

"In the second half we were a little bit dangerous, but didn't create too many chances.

"In the end we got a point, I don't know if we should be happy with that or not."
