Vermaelen has high hopes for Arsenal after AC Milan win

Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen suggests the club will produce a top-four finish this season if they continue with their current form.

Recently the Gunners have come from behind to beat Tottenham 5-1 and Liverpool 2-1 before getting the better of AC Milan 3-0 last night.

Even though the second leg result was not enough to get Arsenal through to the Champions League quarter-finals, Vermaelen is confident these sorts of performances in the Premier League will sew up a spot in Europe's premier club competition next season.

"If we can play like (we did last night), there is no way that we will not be in the top four," he said.

"That performance will give us a boost now.

"We are out of the Champions League but we need to take the great feeling out of this game.

"It's really important that we qualify for the Champions League.

"I think Arsenal are a team that belongs in the Champions League.

"We have the quality to do it, that showed in the second leg."
