Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen has played speculations linking him with a move to Old Trafford this summer and insisted he's happy to fight for his place at the Emirates, despite losing his place in the starting XI to Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker.
Earlier this week, the Telegraph reported that the 28-year-old had agreed a deal in principle with United to move to Old Trafford in the summer, as United and Arsenal were expected to sit down in an attempt to reach an agreement for the transfer of the Belgium international, whose contract at the Emirates runs out in 12 months.
Whatever you think about Arsenal drawing with Man City at the weekend, I don't think many would argue that the players put in a performance full of guts and fight, especially after a week that cannot be forgotten too soon. It may not have been the result the Gunners needed to get themselves back into [.

The Emirates is truly awesome By AondoaverK Hi Arsenal fans. Saturday was not a very good day was it? I missed watching the Stoke game on Television, holed up at, of all places, Stamford bridge.

Between now and next Saturday at 5 o'clock, Arsenal have three massive games that could decide the course of the season.

Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski has always posed an attacking threat, but never more so than when he's manning a cannon. The German star took charge of the decorative arsenal outside the Emirates Stadium. He said: "Preparing the guns for tomorrow's game and the next week's."
Even before Arsenal moved to their new state of the art Emirates stadium, the home ground was not exactly renowned for being the sort of place that opposing teams and fans feared to come to. Highbury and Library may have gone together because they rhymed, but it was sometimes true that the players could have [.

Chelsea visited the Emirates last night and defeated Arsenal 2-0 in the Capital One Cup. The London Derby was highly anticipated because it mean both Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger would get the chance to meet once more on English soil in opposite dugouts.
Though just a League Cup match, both sides fielded quite strong teams, but it was Chelsea who were better on the evening.
Arsene Wenger is not asking the Arsenal fans to bring laser pens to the game to blind the opponents, or to sneak some dodgy Lasagne into their catering supplies, but the Frenchman does think that Gooners have a big part to play in helping Arsenal to success this season.
