rsenal legend Thierry Henry says Mikel Arteta’s team can make a statement against Manchester United tonight.
Arsenal go to United with the prospect of breaking into the top four with a win.
“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 per cent possession,” Henry said.
“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 am 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.”
