Thierry Henry has played down the chances of Arsenal securing a top-four finish this season.

The Gunners ended their losing run on Sunday afternooon thanks to a 2-2 draw with Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal came from behind twice thanks to goals from Theo Walcott and Shkodran Mustafi in front of the Gunners fans in north London.

Arsene Wenger’s men are seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City in the race to secure a place in next season’s Champions League competition.

Arsenal have finished in the top four in the past 20 seasons since Wenger took over the reins of the north London club back in 1996.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ about Arsenal’s chances of finishing in the top four, former Gunners striker Henry said:

“It is a massive gap now to finish in the top four. I will say in comparison to how they played against West Brom, it was a massive improvement.”

Arsenal have only managed to win one of their last six games in the Premier League to leave Wenger’s side off the pace in the top-four race.

The Gunners have lost to Chelsea, Liverpool, Watford and West Brom in recent months.
