Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is not a big fan of the Reds. Not only because they could be seen as a rival but also because of the intensity of their play. The Frenchman has made known his distaste for their play hence making him ”tired” of watching their games. 

Jurgen Klopp’s men are currently 22 points clear of closest rivals Manchester City. Speaking on Liverpool’s style of play and comparing it to that of Manchester City, the former Gunners striker said: 

“The intensity, the rhythm that you have in the Premier League, it’s very high. You see, when you watch Liverpool, even just watching them, you get tired. They move so quickly. When you go to Manchester City, before you have even looked up, there is pressing on you. If you control the ball, there are already three guys around you. The Premier League’s intensity is immense.”

Meanwhile, the French football coach spoke on his dreams of someday managing his former English Premier League club Arsenal. Henry played 369 times for the North London club and believes he has what it takes to make the Gunners come out on top. Speaking the 42-year-old said: 

“I do dream of managing Arsenal but I also dream of running up the court and doing a slam dunk. It doesn’t mean it’ll happen. But yes, I’ll want to manage Arsenal until the day I die. It was already difficult before Arsene left. It was already difficult. I have learnt by coming onto this side of things (coaching), there are things that I heard, that you might hear something from someone you know or I know and we might know things.But we don’t actually know anything, certainly not enough to speak about it, since then I have decided it is best not to get involved in these sorts of things.”

Arsenal defeated Everton 3-2 on Sunday to keep their chances of finishing the season top four alive. What started off as a mistake for the Gunners, due to poor defending, saw the Toffees take the lead when Dominic Calvert-Lewin struck with a splendid overhead kick. The Gunners were able to revive themselves thanks to Eddie Nketiah’s equaliser. Gabon international striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also scored two goals to give his side the edge over the Toffees. 

Arsenal is currently ninth place in the English Premier League with 37 points. Tenth place Burnely also has 37 points. In order for Arsenal to finish the top four, they would need to win all of their remaining games to catch up to fourth place Chelsea who currently has 44 points.
