Thierry Henry’s brutal Arsenal end of season prediction has already been proven wrong, with four Premier League matchdays still remaining.
The Gunners got off to a torrid start this term, losing their first three Premier League outings.
Mikel Arteta and Co quickly steadied the ship and now find themselves fourth in the current league standings.
The north London outfit are desperate to qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League and with four games left in this season’s league campaign, they have already secured a place in the Europa League at a minimum – proving Henry wrong in the process.
During a quickfire round of questions on CBS Sports back in October, Henry was asked if Arsenal would qualify for any European competition – including the Europa Conference League – this season.
The Frenchman replied: “Not with what I saw recently.”
“Speaking at the Prime Video Presents Sport 2021 showcase event, Henry went on to criticise the direction the club was going, saying”I don’t know if things are going in the right direction.
“Did you watch it? I’ve seen us beating Norwich before, winning at Burnley, beating Tottenham at home – because we always beat Tottenham at home.”
“I was more than happy when we beat Tottenham as we were on a good run but I was waiting to see a performance, away from home, against a team that passes the ball. And, instead, we suffered.”
Arsenal will be desperate to prove the Frenchman even more wrong by finishing ahead of local rivals Spurs, who currently sit two points behind them in the race for top four.
