Arsenal legend Thierry Henry claims that it will be a’ nightmare’ for Gunners fans to see North London rivals Tottenham Hotspurs win the Premier League this season.
Spurs are currently three points behind league leaders Leicester City but with a superior goals difference and lead Arsenal by three points with ten games left until the end of the season.
However, both teams failed to capitalized on The Foxes slip as they lost to West Ham and Swansea City respectively and Henry is of the opinion that Gunners fans will hate to see Arsene Wenger’s men lose the title to their bitter rivals.
“It will be an even greater disappointment if they fail to win it this time because Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United have all gone missing from the race – yet Arsenal still have not been able to take advantage,” Henry told The Sun.
“And the ultimate nightmare would be for Tottenham to finish as champions instead. My God, I don’t even want to think about that possibility. It would be unbearable for all us Arsenal fans.
“That is why tomorrow’s meeting at the Lane is probably the biggest North London derby I have ever known. This is the first time I can ever remember Tottenham being in this situation of challenging for the title at this stage of the season.
“They have never had the chance to win the Premier League before and, apart from 2006 when they lost at West Ham on the final day, they have never threatened to finish above Arsenal.”
Ahead of tomorrow’s match against Spurs at White Hart Lane, the former Barcelona star reckons that Arsenal players are low in confidence but he still expects a great game.
“White Hart Lane will be absolutely rocking tomorrow and I will be intrigued to see how both teams handle the atmosphere,” he stated.
“I will not be there personally. I only go to Tottenham when I am working. But I will be watching on TV and what I want to see is a really strong response from the Arsenal players to get the fans back on their side.
“We all know the quality is there but confidence is not high and that was obvious at Old Trafford last Sunday and again on Wednesday night.”
