Thierry Henry delivers honest verdict on Arsenal after Man United draw
Thierry Henry has his say about Arsenal's title hopes after their 1-1 draw with Manchester United
Thierry Henry believes that Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United dealt a significant blow to the Gunners’ Premier League title hopes.
The north London side battled back to earn a point against the Red Devils at Old Trafford after falling behind to Juan Mata’s goal at Old Trafford.
Olivier Giroud came off the bench to score a late equaliser for Arsene Wenger’s men and earn them a point against their old foes.
Arsenal will be happy to have earned a point from a game in which they failed to click into gear.
However, former Arsenal star Henry feels that the north London side’s draw at Old Trafford is a negative result in terms of the title race.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the final whistle, Henry said: “I think that last year they would have lost the game playing that well.
“They’ve been scoring late goals. They were lacking a bit of everything but they saved a point.
“But do they want to win the title? That’s another way of seeing the game. If you’re talking about the title, maybe it’s not a great point.”
Arsenal return to Champions League action on Wednesday night with a crunch clash against Paris Saint-Germain at The Emirates.
The north London side have not won the Premier League since 2003-04.
