The man who has scored more goals for Arsenal than any other has been bigging up the current crop of Gunners this week, despite the team having to rely on goals from the most unlikely source of our defensive midfielder Mathieu Flamini to beat north London rivals Tottenham to progress to the next round of the Capital One cup.
Thierry Henry was delighted with the derby win and he believes it could well be the catalyst for Arsenal to go on a good run. So when he was asked about the Premier League title race, which all of us Arsenal fans were expecting us to make a much better go at this season, the former France striker declared that he still thinks we will be up there, as reported by The Express.
He said, “I would have been more worried if Man City had won against West Ham, but they didn’t.
“It gives a little hope after the loss against Chelsea.
“Things can happen in this league, as we all know.
“Nobody would have thought West Ham would go to Anfield, the Emirates and the Etihad and win.
“I still think they’re going to be challenging. Are they going to be winning it? I don’t know.
“I think I still see City being up there at the end of the season.”
Man City may well look the strongest side right now and Chelsea had a handy reprieve last weekend due to the inept or biased refereeing of Mike Dean, while Man United are starting to get their swagger back to go with their grinding out of results, but we all know that Arsenal can be much better than we have been so far.
The Gunners sqaud is more than capable of going on a great run and winning big games while rolling over the smaller clubs. We just need the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Walcott, Giroud, Ramsey and all to start finishing more of the many chances that are being created and to get the confidence back. Will we see it happen in Leicester though, because it needs to start happening very soon?
