Thierry Henry warns Arsenal must ditch one aspect of their game to beat Man City to Premier League title

THIERRY HENRY has warned Arsenal to ditch the emotional aspect of their game in order to pip Manchester City to the title.

The Gunners are currently four points ahead of the reigning champions at the top of the table, having played a game more.

Henry has urged the Gunners to be less emotional as they attempt to win the Premier League

However, their hopes of ending a 19-year wait to win the Premier League suffered a blow when they blew a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at West Ham on Sunday.

That ensured that City, who face Arsenal in a crunch clash next Wednesday, now know that they will retain their crown should they win all of their remaining matches.

Henry, who led the Gunners to two titles during his playing days including the 2003-04 Invincibles title, still believes Mikel Arteta’s team can pull it off.

However, the French legend claims that, from the players to their boss, they have been too emotional all season.

And while assessing their chances, he urged them to ditch that trait and instead become ice-cold winners while speaking on CBS Sports Golazo.

Henry said: “The last game didn’t reassure me. From Arsenal’s point of view, since the beginning of the season, I have been saying you don’t win a title on emotions.

“You can win a cup, the Champions League, maybe even the World Cup. But across 38 games you can’t be too emotional about it, and recently we’ve been too emotional.

“You can feel the emotion coming, but don’t be emotional. There’s a difference. Stay calm.”

Henry continued: “We are still ahead of Man City, but I am saying they need to get rid of the emotional part of the game and concentrate on what they have to do.

“We are still ahead. City still have to win their games and beat us. It’s still there in front of Arsenal. 

“But for me, get rid of the emotional part of the game. When you watch City, they look composed whatever the result.

“I know we are talking about the creme de la creme, but when you look at Arsenal, sometimes they lose control of the game.

“The point is, we are still ahead. So if I was in that dressing room I’d be saying it’s right there, just go and grab it.”

Arsenal face relegation strugglers Southampton at the Emirates on Friday while City are in FA Cup semi-final action this weekend against Sheffield United before the top two showdown next week.
