Thierry Henry sends blunt Twitter message to Arsenal after Leicester win

Thierry Henry tells Arsenal to step it up as the Premier League title race hots up

Social Spy

Thierry Henry has taken to social media to tell Arsenal that it is time to “act like champions” after the north London side’s dramatic 2-1 win over Leicester City on Sunday.

The Gunners had to come from a goal down to earn the three points against the high-flying Foxes at Emirates Stadium after Jamie Vardy gave the visitors the lead from the penalty spot in the first half.

Leicester had Danny Simpson sent off shortly after half-time and substitute Theo Walcott brought Arsenal level, before Danny Welbeck came off the bench to glance home Mesut Ozil’s free-kick deep into stoppage time.

The result left Arsenal third in the Premier League table and two points behind leaders Leicester heading into the final 12 games of the season.

The north London side have not won the title since Henry was playing for the club back in the 2003-04 season.
