Thierry Henry is confident that Arsenal have what it takes to beat Manchester City in the League Cup final next month.

The Gunners booked their place in the final at Wembley after impressively beating Chelsea in the semi-finals with a 2-1 victory at The Emirates earlier in January.

The north London side will now take on the Premier League leaders for their shot at the first major trophy on offer to Arsene Wenger’s side this season.

Arsenal have a good recent record at Wembley and Wenger’s men beat Manchester City and Chelsea on their way to winning their third FA Cup title in three years last term.

And Gunners legend Henry feels sure that the north London side have the ability to beat the Citizen when they do battle at Wembley on 25 February.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Henry said: “Last year, I don’t think many people gave them a chance against Man City in the semi-final of the FA Cup. They beat them, they won.

“It’s a final and anything can happen in a final. It will be a great final, that’s for sure.”

Meanwhile, Arsenal are now dusting themselves down after the disappointment of their 3-1 loss to Swansea City in the Premier League on Tuesday night.

Wenger must rally his troops as the north London side prepare to host Everton at The Emirates in their next Premier League game on Saturday evening.

The Gunners are facing a serious fight in trying to get back into the top four in the Premier League table this season.
