Vermaelen eyes repeat performance

And the stopper has revealed he is already looking forward to midweek trip to Glasgow.

“Of course the Everton result is good for our spirit but already we are looking towards Tuesday," he said in the Evening Standard.

"We can be happy with this but now we have to be focused on qualifying for the Champions League. It is not going to be easy.

“Celtic are a good team and we will have to be on the top of our game to beat them. I joined Arsenal to play in the Champions League, it is important for every player and club to be there.

“I don’t know too much about Celtic but they have some good, physical players up front and I think it could be a similar match to Everton. We will have to be physical again and also play our own game.”
