- The club's legend Thierry Henry contends his former side stand a chance of qualifying for the Champions League and anything short of that will be unacceptable

Thierry Henry believes Arsenal are in the driving seat in the race to secure a top-four finish at the end of the season.
The Gunners are among five teams eyeing the final Champions League spot, with Man City, Liverpool, and Chelsea in line to seal the top three slots.
Mikel Arteta's men are currently placed sixth on the standings with 39 points, four behind fourth-placed Man United.
Whereas the north Londoners have three matches to play, they are sure to face stiff competition in their hope to play in Europe next term.
Thierry Henry's prediction
According to Arsenal hero, Henry, the Emirates outfit have no choice but to qualify for the Champions League - and anything short of that will be regarded as a failure.
But speaking on CBS Sports, the ex-footballer exuded confidence his former side have a significant advantage over their rivals eyeing a top-four finish.
"Arsenal had to go and win at Wolves. That was a massive win, so there are still a lot of games to go," Henry said.
"For me, if they don’t do it, as I said at the start of the season, then it will be a failure," he added.

"I think it will go all the way to the end. Arsenal, do they have enough forwards? Spurs look to be in trouble. Right now I’d think you’d take them out of it," he added.
