Vermaelen: Players owe Arsenal away fans after last night

Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen admits they owe their away fans after last night's humiliation at AC Milan.

Vermaelen is confident his side can repair some of the damage in the second leg.

"It’s difficult to give an explanation for what happened so soon after the game this evening because I’m quite disappointed by what happened," he said.

"'It was a really bad result. The only thing we can do is remember that we've still got another game to go. Now we have to show some pride and give 100 per cent in the return leg. We have to give something back to all those Arsenal fans who came all the way out here to this stadium, here in Milan, only for us to disappoint them.

"We must think of them now because what happened was not good. The only thing we can do is give them a good result in the home game."
