Thierry Henry Says Granit Xhaka Can Help Get The Best From Lacazette

Giroud came off the bench to score a priceless winner for his side against the Foxes

Giroud came off the bench to score a priceless winner for his side against the Foxes

The second half started slow for Arsenal and they punished once again by Jamie Vardy who headed the fifth goal of the game with a well taken header after he was left unmarked.

"Granit Xhaka has it in his locker to play that ball over the top", Thierry Henry told Monday Night Football.

The signing of Lacazette is likely to mean that Giroud won't be a regular starter for Arsenal in the Premier League this season but the 30-year-old should still receive plenty of opportunities to impress, while he has proven to be a useful asset from the bench.

"What bothers me the most is I think that team on paper is good enough to compete every year to win the league". When I go to the Emirates and I watch the game, it's 'Yes!' when we have the ball and 'No!' when the opposition does.

Arsene Wenger has dismissed the notion of "bogey teams" ahead of Arsenal's trip to Stoke City on Saturday. "It's very hard to win the league right now".

It shouldn't come as a surprise to the Gunners that he was watching the game, as I'm sure many managers were, but Jose Mourinho's comments will leave a mixed reaction on the faces of Arsenal fans.

Mom, sons injured after large tree falls in Central Park
The family was walking along West Drive near West 62nd St when witnesses say they heard the terrifying noise of the tree fall. The mother, her two little boys and her baby were transported to New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center.

"Please tell me she got a proper photo as well." asked a fellow Arsenal fan. 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). And there is nothing worse than when players feel like you are not totally committed.

Thierry Henry sees elements of the Invincibles in the current Manchester United soccer squad.

"What I saw, I have seen so many times".

But Henry believes that if Sanchez stays, he and Lacazette could form a formidable partnership up front for his former side.

"I know how important he is not only as a player - he's a fantastic player - but also in the group he has a big weight".
