Vermaelen: I know Arsenal must finish above Spurs

Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen knows its important to finish above Tottenham.

Belgian centre-half Vermaelen revealed giving the supporters reason to smile again was a big motivation.

He said: "I have only been here for three years, but I know there is a big rivalry between Tottenham and Arsenal.

"I hear it every day on the streets. They ask us to be above Tottenham at the end of the season, but we can only look at ourselves and just play.

"If we win every game, we will finish on top of them, so that is what we will try to do."
