He insists that “the table doesn’t lie” and that Arsenal should be better than their 10th place in the Premier League, although he admitted that they don’t seem to believe.

When asked if Arsenal are making progress under Arteta, Henry told Sky Sports: “First and foremost, I would say yes in a way because I think Mikel bought himself some time by winning the FA Cup. Some people will say, “Yeah that’s last year”.

“But on the way of winning it, the teams he won against bought him some time with the Arsenal fans and the team because he had something to show at the end of the season.

“Now what I think the team is lacking is consistency. I know people always use the word consistency but this is what they need to do.

“I sometimes put it down to their games. Sometimes I watch the first half of Arsenal and it seems like they don’t believe they can win.

“When they’re in a situation when they need to come back and have a go, it looks like why didn’t you start like that?

“I like the way he set up the team yesterday. People were going forward more often than not. The intensity was there, the desire to win the game was there.”
