Thierry Henry admits Arsenal are annoying and suggests why they lack consistency

Thierry Henry Two

Arsenal are struggling for form in the Premier League run-in once again.

Arsenal take on Leicester City this weekend at The Emirates and know that their Premier League title fight may hinge on the result.

If they lose to The Foxes Arsenal will be eight points behind the league leaders and seemingly out of the running - with Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City also facing each other on Sunday.

Not long ago it looked like Arsenal had put themselves in pole position to win the league once again but they have struggled for form recently and that has seen them slip off the summit.

It is typical of Arsenal in recent times.

One man who admits it is becoming annoying is club record goalscorer and Premier League legend Thierry Henry.

He told Sky Sports News earlier today (12/02/2016):

"I actually don't know. It is actually annoying if you are an Arsenal fan.

"They did enough against Bournemouth. 

"Now they need to go on a run, a proper run. But it seems that every time it doesn't happen."

He then went on to give a potential reason behind the struggles, a lack of title-winning experience in the Arsenal team:

"Why? I don't know. Do they want it enough? Do they want to grab that title?

"I don't know why there is no consistency in that team. Maybe because in that team you have guys that didn't win a championship yet. The first one you win is always the trigger and then you build on some confidence. That didn't happen yet. 

"They don't how to win the league and consistency is key."

Arsenal know that they will need to pick up a win this weekend to get themselves right back in the mix for the Premier League title.

Henry's great Arsenal side used to thrive on fixtures like this. Arsene Wenger will hope his current troops can muster such a performance.
