Vermaelen accepts that the teamâ€™s recent results have been â€śdisappointingâ€ť but says there is enough quality at the Club to have grounds for optimism.
â€śThings can turn around really quickly and in these times you have to stick together as a group and as a Club,â€ť the captain said. â€śIâ€™m really positive this group has the quality to win games again.
â€śAt the moment a lot of players are coming back. Weâ€™ve never had so many fit players in the past as at the moment. I think our squad is strong enough.
â€śItâ€™s a little bit negative at the moment because we had two disappointing results. But in football it can turn really quickly and on Saturday [against QPR] it can be different again.
â€śThatâ€™s the positive about England. You play so many games, sometimes three times a week, so you have another chance really quickly to get a good result again.â€ť
