Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen is confident his side can continue their fine start to the season in a big week for the club.

The Gunners begin their Champions League campaign with a trip to Montpellier before taking on Premier League champions Manchester City next weekend.

Vermaelen feels there is new-found confidence in the squad and says there should be no question that they can beat anyone.

Strong bond

"City are the champions from last year so it won't be easy," said Vermaelen. "We have to go there and play our own game - I am confident we can get a result there.

"The team has a strong bond in the dressing room and outside as well. It feels good.
