Arsenal Legend, Theirry Henry has bared his thoughts on the last Derby between Arsenal and their North London rivals Tottenham which ended in a one all draw. According to the former striker, the gunners didn’t show enough desire in the first half of the game.
Henry, who is still Arsenal’s all-time top goal scorer said, Tottenham played better than Arsenal. “I think Arsenal did enough to get back in the game through their desire, something they didn’t have in the first half”
“I still think Tottenham played better than Arsenal today. For me you know that Man City drew their game and you can get two points ahead of them, and they did not take the opportunity. They didn’t play well, and you have to win these types of games when you are not playing well.
“No matter how, no matter what, especially against Tottenham. It was more about how Tottenham played at the Emirates stadium –they wanted it more, they had more desire for a longer period.
“Yes, Arsenal came back with the right attitude and Flamini was the symbol of it –but it was more an Arsenal focused on getting the ball in the box and winning headers.
“But I go back to the same thing, Man City lost two points today and it was a great opportunity especially against Spurs. You have to win these games [to win the league], especially when you are not having a good day. That’s how to win the Premier League” he told Sky Sports.
The former French international who spent 8 years at Arsenal now coaches the under 18s at Arsenal.
