Henry - don't rule out Arsenal

Ex Gunner and now Barcelona player Thierry Henry, believes Arsenal
have the complete credentials required for a genuine title pursuit.
The Arsenal legend in his interview with the Times didn't conceal his
love for the North London outfit, and made it crystal clear that once
you're a Gunner, you'll always be a Gunner.

"I know its coming up to five years since we won a trophy" Henry told
the Times. "but don't rule us out of the premier league title this
"you can't - when a team have proved they can get up off the floor
after not one heavy blow to the chin but two, you have to take their
chances seriously.

"Arsene wenger's players took into beatings in big matches - from
manchester united and still kept pace with those clubs at the top of
the league. "Now you look at our remaining programme starting with
Burnley at the Emirates and you can see that the other members of the
so - called big four are safely out of the way.
"With no disrespect to the rest, that has to be an advantage. So we're
very much in the fighting for the big prize. And there can be no doubt
now that Arsene's latest generation have the stomach for the fight.
"They have survived a lot this season, including injuries to Cesc
Fabregas and, still, Robin Van Persie. In fact, you could say that if
Van Persie had stayed in the side, we might even be top now."
