Arsenal’s Belgian defender came in, right into injury time to score the winning goal as the game was looking destined to finish out a draw between themselves and sixth placed Newcastle United who were also looking for the points for their push to the Champions League qualification spot, but which for them that dream is all but over after Arsenal’s late win at the Emirates.
Reflecting on the mentality of the team itself and the manner of their win, Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen said:
“We showed the mentality of fighters. It’s the fourth time we’ve come back from 1-0 down.”
“In the second half we were pushing and pushing. We knew we had to be patient and in the end we will score a goal, and that’s what happened today.”
