Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry has told his former team that they face a “proper fight” for the Premier League title.
He, however, called on Mikel Arteta’s men to maintain cool heads.
The Gunners returned to the top of the table last weekend, thanks to a 4-2 win at Aston Villa and Manchester City’s 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest.
Arsenal are bidding to win the title for the first time since 2004 when Henry was still at the club.
“I’ve been there. You’re going to, during the season, have bad games, and it didn’t happen for [a] little while,” Henry told Uproxx.
“You’re not going to win for a week or two weeks, it will happen. It’s not how you fall, it’s how you go back on your feet and how you stand after that.”
