Why Arsene Wenger may never win the EPL – Thierry Henry

Arsenal have are now 4th position on the Premier League log and it appears that we cannot win the Premier League title again for this season.

Thierry Henry insists Arsene Wenger should not leave Arsenal at the end of the season and believes the players must change their mentality if they are to compete with Chelsea.

The Gunners were convincingly beaten 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, leaving them 12 points behind Antonio Conte’s side.

The defeat has led to fresh calls for Wenger to step down at the end of his contract this summer, but Henry feels his former manager does not need to end his 20-year reign at the club.

‘The work he has to do at the moment is difficult, because it is mental work,’ Henry told RMC Sport.

‘Personally, I do not think Arsene has to go. Does he have to change his tactics or his way of doing things?

‘I do not know if he’s willing to do that.’

Henry also believes that Arsenal’s players do not currently have enough drive and self-discipline to challenge Chelsea at the top of the table.

‘What I saw against Chelsea is a mental problem, and it’s not easy to manage. For now, something is missing,’ said the striker.

‘It’s been 12 years since Arsenal won the title and we feel this season they may not win it. I think there is quality in this team. But is there enough to win the title?

‘At the beginning of the season, when you look at Chelsea and Arsenal on paper, there is not a huge difference. So that means it’s possible.

‘But for that, you have to be in tune with every day. I think Arsenal players are not aware of what they can achieve. At some point you have to believe in your chances of winning.

‘It takes self-management and self-discipline in the group.’
