Vermaelen says Arsenal gunning for Tottenham's third place

Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen admits they're gunning for Tottenham's third place.

Spurs' once ­formidable 10-point lead has been whittled down to four, and the Gunners' are looking up - their ­confidence lifted by the 3-0 win over AC Milan.

Vermaelen said: "You can see that we fought really hard. You can see we have a lot of qualities if we put the effort in. You can see what we are capable of ­because Milan are top in Serie A. That's not bad.

"We have got good results against Tottenham and ­Liverpool - and if we play like we did against Milan, I am not worried because we will be top four. We can beat any team. There are a few contenders - Newcastle, Liverpool, Chelsea. We will have to fight toe-to-toe for fourth, and maybe third. You never know."
