Thierry Henry acknowledges Mourinho's Manchester United could go entire season unbeaten

"Granit Xhaka has it in his locker to play that ball over the top", added Henry.

In six previous visits to the bet365 Stadium Arsenal had failed to beat the Potters, but that run changed last season when they secured an emphatic 4-1 win.

According to the French manager: "It's impossible to keep all the strikers happy when they don't play, but we have many games and hopefully I can give them all a good number of games".

It's official. Everton won't be getting to sign Arsenal's Olivier Giroud this summer, as Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that the French global striker has made a decision to stay.

Lacazette scored in his premier League debut after just two minutes but the hero of the night was Olivier Giroud who came off the bench to score the game's 7th goal and Arsenal's winning goal in the game. Yes, you score goals and we know Arsenal will score, but you need to be able to not concede.

'I think Lacazette is going to play in the centre. He plays in a fairly traditional centre-forward way, bringing others into play brilliantly at times (a part of his game which is quite underrated). "Very neat, very clean, he does whatever the game is asking him to do".

"And there is nothing worse than when the players feel you're not totally committed".

"I opened the door for him at some stage as I had many strikers and it's important for him to play but I don't want him to go".

Thierry Henry watched Manchester United destroy West Ham on Sunday and saw elements of the Arsenal Invincibles side that went a whole league season unbeaten in 2003/04.

The former Montpellier man has been the main man up front for the Gunners for years, but with the arrival of compatriot Alexandre Lacazette this summer, it was clear his role would transition into that of a back-up. That is where I would like to see him play.
