Thierry Henry has admitted that he is struggling to pinpoint why Arsenal have been so inconsistent this season.

The Gunners have struggled to find consistent form in the top flight this season and currently find themselves significantly off the pace in the race for Champions League qualification.

Indeed, Arsenal are currently in sixth place in the table and eight points behind fourth-placed Chelsea FC, leaving them with a significant uphill struggle if they want to finish in the Champions League spots.

Arsenal’s best hope of qualifying for next season’s Champions League may come by winning the Europa League this season.

And Gunners legend Henry has admitted that he is not sure why the north London side have struggled to find consistent form this term.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Henry said: “It’s a weird one. It’s difficult to pinpoint.

“In some games they show us that they can do it but the consistency [is missing]. We go back to the same thing.”

Arsenal have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph under Arsene Wenger back in 2003-04, when Henry was still playing for the Gunners.

The north London side have won the FA Cup in three of the last four seasons, however.

The Gunners will take on Swedish side Ostersunds in the last 32 of the Europa League on Thursday night as they bid to progress in Europe’s second tier club competition.
