Arsenal Legend Thierry Henry has questioned his former club’s mentality to win the Premier league, ahead of the Gunners crunch tie against Leicester City next weekend, via ESPN.
The Gunners will host the Fox on Sunday in a game that will put both sides in strong position to win the league should any of them claim all three points. Leicester City is currently ahead of Arsenal with 5 points and should they extend the lead over Arsene Wenger’s men on sunday, it will be a bit tougher for Wenger and its troops.
Henry who currently work as a youth team coach at the Emirates believes that for the Gunners not to be well ahead of the pack when other big teams are struggling is a cause for alarm.
“If I had said to you that Chelsea would struggle, Manchester City would struggle, you would have thought that it would be a season that Arsenal would walk away with it easily,” Henry told Sky Sports. “And it’s not happening.
“I would question also the mentality of it. The game against Chelsea, they didn’t score [lost 1-0]. Those are the sort of games you need to win.
“They need three points. It is business. You don’t win the league for a very long time. Can you win it? It’s time to wake up and do it.
“For me at the moment, Leicester are the team to win it.
They’re not only showing they can win it, they’re showing they can cope with the pressure.”
The Gunner’s were top of the table at the beginning of the year after they were in good form in December but a run of bad games which saw them won just once in 5 games have left them in 3rd position, 5 points behind league leaders Leicester City.
