Arsenal skipper Thomas Vermaelen says the Gunners must not let the disappointment of their Champions League exit at the hands of Bayern Munich damage their chances of domestic success. Arsenal drew 1-1 on Tuesday night, meaning they lost 3-1 on aggregate, and Vermaelen says: "The result (against Bayern) wasn't great for us to go through, but you always need to take the positives out of it.

"We are still up there in the Premier League, we are in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, you can feel the desire in the team that there is still something to play for."
