Thomas Vermaelen has urged his Arsenal teammates to forget about their upcoming FA Cup final and focus on wresting a fourth-placed finish away from Everton.

The Gunners' Champions League fate now lies in their own hands after the Toffees' 3-2 defeat to Crystal Palace allowed Arsene Wenger's men to leapfrog them in the standings.

With an FA Cup final meeting with Hull City looming large, the skipper has called on his colleagues to forget about Wembley and concentrate on beating the Tigers at the KC Stadium in the Premier League tomorrow.

Speaking to the club's official website, the Belgium international said: "We will play Hull in the FA Cup final, but there is no point looking to that game yet. We have made it there which was our target, but we want to finish the job on May 17.

"We have a cup final to look forward to, but we have a massive job to do in the league before that so let's forget about the FA Cup for a while and go from game to game in the Premier League.

"We have to look at ourselves, not worry about the other teams and just try to win our games. Every single game is really important, now it is always a vital game - that is what playing for a big club like Arsenal means and that is what we want."

Tomorrow's clash with Hull is scheduled to kick off at 2.05pm.
