Former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry believes the Gunners can win the English Premier League now that they have the required experience.
Speaking to Sky Sports before yesterday’s game against Chelsea, the Frenchman confessed it would have been nice to feature in such a big game although he joked about not entirely sure if his body, at the age of 33, would keep up with the fast rhythm of the English game.
Asked about why the Gunners struggle so much to beat Chelsea, Henry explained how it usually is a mental thing rather than not having the right players to do it as he predicted a 2-1 win for Arsenal who went on to win the game by three goals to one.
The Frenchman concluded by answering questions about the possibility of the Gunners to win the English Premier League saying how the team is not young anymore, they have plenty of experience in the domestic league and how they genuinely can go on and become champions.
Before the Arsenal-Chelsea game, Henry said:
I wish [I was playing in this one] but it’s just a wish as with the pace of the game I don’t know if I can keep up now.
I’m enjoying my time in New York but as I said many times I call London my home, I really love this place.
I remember when Chelsea used to struggle to beat us, sometimes it’s a mental thing, it doesn’t go down to having good or bad players, I just think that you need to believe that you can beat this team and it can actually happen, hopefully tonight. My prediction is that [Arsenal] will win 2-1.
When you look at the table [Arsenal are in the title race], they have the capacity of doing it but it’s down to believe that they can do it. This team has quality, not young anymore, they have been playing in the Premiership for a long time.
As an Arsenal supporter I do think they have the chance to do it but I’m never objective when it’s down to Arsenal but I think they can do it.
