Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm believes that the club are slowly gaining the respect of the top teams in the Premier League.

Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm has insisted that the club are capable of establishing themselves as a top-eight side in the Premier League.

Vorm has featured in impressive victories over Valencia and Crystal Palace, and ahead of his side's match with Arsenal, the Dutch international believes that rival outfits have taken notice of their recent displays.

The 29-year-old told Wales Online: "The table looked a lot better after we beat Palace and we are in an area where we deserve to be.

"I think a lot of teams respect us now and know that we can dominate games like we did against Valencia and Palace.

"When you think about us being a top-eight side and the way that we play, not a lot of other teams around us can match the possession game that we have."

The former Utrecht stopper has made 68 league appearances since moving to the Liberty Stadium in 2011.
