Thierry Henry is convinced that Arsenal are still genuine contenders to win the Premier League title this season.

The north Londoners are currently second in the Premier League table and just a point behind leaders Chelsea heading into the final 12 games of the season.

Hopefully they’re going to win something, and hopefully it can be the league

Arsenal’s title credentials were called into question following their 5-1 thrashing at Liverpool earlier this month, but Henry is certain that the north Londoners are still in with a chance of winning the title for the first time since 2004.

“This last loss against Liverpool, everybody was [acting] like it’s the end. It’s not the end. They’re still there. They’re still in the mix,” said Henry in an interview with ESPNFC.

“I love Arsenal, but let’s all be honest. I don’t think a lot of people thought that they were going to compete for the title, to still be in the Champions League, still in the FA Cup and playing well.”

“People say [they struggle] when they play against the big teams or whatever, but they are still in the mix. Hopefully they’re going to win something, and hopefully it can be the league.”
