According to Sky Sports, Arsenal legend and former French international Thierry Henry, has expressed his concern that arsenal’s premier league title challenge could come unstuck as they face trickier set of fixtures in the second half of the season.
Arsenal haven’t won the domestic league title since 2004 when henry was starring in a lead role for them (Arsenal), but currently they are tired with Leicester City at the top of the premier league table with the other half of the season about to unfold.
They have made 39 points from 19 games, has seen them atop the table along with an impressive Leicester city side. While Manchester City and Totten Ham chase closely as Chelsea and Manchester United continue to decline this season.
But the Arsenal legend (Thierry Henry) thinks that his former team could struggle in the New Year due to a tough return set of fixtures.
“What bothers me and what I am worried about is the return fixtures Arsenal face, they have to go to Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Totten Ham.
We have found out it is difficult to win at Stoke and West ham, they have to play Palace at home, which is where you don’t want to play them because they are better side away.” Henry said.
Arsenal face obviously identical teams in each half of the campaign, but as henry points out, trips to white Hart Lane, a ground which spurs have lost only once this season could prove trickier than if they were playing at the Emirates. Despite this, the gunners are in prime position as they have the chance to strengthen their grip on top spot with fixtures against premier league strugglers Newcastle and Sunderland.
