This WILL be Arsenal’s year! Henry tells talkSPORT Gunners are set for PL glory

first_imgThierry Henry has told talkSPORT THIS is the season Arsenal will end their title drought.The Gunners have not won the Premier League since 2003/04, when Henry was in his pomp, and have finished outside of the top two for the past decade.But Henry – widely regarded as Arsenal’s greatest ever player – believes Arsene Wenger’s current squad possesses the quality, depth and X-factor needed to return to the summit of English football.Wenger’s men have won their last four league games to move up to second in the table, level on points with leaders Manchester City.And Henry, speaking to Drivetime’s Adrian Durham and Darren Gough, said: “I genuinely think it is their year.“They are getting results against big teams now and are backing up those results after big games. That is the key.“Theo Walcott playing in the middle is pushing [Olivier] Giroud, and Giroud playing in the middle when Theo isn’t playing is pushing Theo. There is healthy competition there now that you need in the game.“Mesut Ozil, as well, has finally woken up. You know what he can do. He is an amazing player, a World Cup winner, with the touch, the vision, but he wasn’t always doing it on a daily basis with Arsenal. Now he is doing it.“Then you have [Santi] Cazorla. He is the brain of the team – the way he wants to play is how the team is going to play. Then there is the X-factor you always need to have to win a title – Alexis Sanchez. He is the guy that you know, when he is in tune, it is very difficult to beat Arsenal.“The back four is also doing very well. [Hector] Bellerin is doing well, Nacho Monreal is showing why he is at Arsenal and Petr Cech is doing what he is supposed to.”Thierry Henry was speaking to talkSPORT in his role as a Sky Academy Ambassador for Sky Academy Confidence Monthlast_img read more
