Man United vs Arsenal: You’re being smashed by big teams – Thierry Henry warns Arteta’s Gunners


Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry has issued a stern warning to his former club ahead of their trip to Manchester United on Thursday, saying they must start winning big teams.

Henry wants the Gunners to make a ‘statement’ against United, adding that he wants to see more ‘improvement’ from them.

Arsenal started poorly in the season but has now gone on to win ten of their last 12 games in all competitions.

The Gunners are now fifth on the table, one point outside the Champions League places with a game in hand.

Club legend, Henry has hailed Mikel Arteta for doing a good job but warned that the team’s recent record has been flattered by some favourable fixtures, insisting that his former club needs to start beating their top-four rivals.

Asked about Arsenal’s recent form, Henry told Prime Video, “It showed we can beat Newcastle at home. We can beat Burnley, we can beat Aston Villa before Steven Gerrard arrived. We can beat Leicester with 27% possession.

“I think personally winning against those teams – and I’m not having a go – but I expect it from Arsenal when they play one game a week.

“Now the improvement is can you beat the teams at the top? That’s the improvement I want to see and I’m waiting to see tomorrow at Old Trafford.

“Every time they play a team they should lose against, they not only lose but they get smashed. The improvement I want to see is can they get top-four?

“I’m an Arsenal fan and I think Mikel Arteta is doing well, but I want to see that improvement.

“Manchester United are not in the top-four but it can be a statement to go there and win and win well.

“We’re talking about Arsenal. I’m not over the moon by a Newcastle win, I want to see them win at Old Trafford tomorrow.”
