Mathieu Flamini insists Arsenal's team spirit is as strong as ever, despite Manu Adebayor's clash with Nicklas Bendtner this week.

"We are very close as a team and that means that when you have difficulties, you can react together. That closeness is making all the difference," he said.

"In every situation we have people who can make a difference, who can give us that little bit more than the other team and help us win the game. I believe in this team - we have the strength to win the title and the Champions League."
