Vermaelen outlines Arsenal ambitions

Arsenal need to make all those who have doubted them this season eat their words by pushing on and winning the Premier League title, according to Thomas Vermaelen.
The Belgian defender has been a rock at the heart of the Arsenal back four for the majority of the season, and his side have been written off as title occasions on two occasions.

However, both times the Gunners have managed to defy the football odds and close the gap on Chelsea and Manchester United. The Gunners are currently third, level on points with the Blues in second.

Arsenal's next match sees them travel to the KC Stadium to face relegation-threatened Hull City and Vermaelen wants his side to continue their four-match winning streak - however they may have to do without captain Cesc Fabregas who remains a doubt after missing the team's 5-0 Champions League win over Porto in midweek.

Vermaelen reckons Arsenal might need to win every game between now and the end of the season in order to clinch top spot.

"We will see at the end of the season. You have to focus every game and we will see where we are at the end," the defender said.

Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger has praised Gunners forward Nicklas Bendtner after the Dane got a hat-trick in the Porto win. This feat came just days after he was lambasted for missing a series of opportunities in the match against Burnley and Wenger reckons the striker's continued confidence could be vital in the Premier League title battle.

Bendtner will be looking to carry this sort of form into the summer as he will be a key player in Denmark's World Cup campaign.

However, the World Cup online betting suggests his side will struggle to make an impact at the competition.
