Ex-Arsenal striker, Thierry Henry says The Gunners must “pull in the same direction” these final weeks to catch up with any slip from Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

Yes, mathematically it’s still possible, even if they lose at Goodison [Park]. It’s going to be very difficult. They have a game in hand in order to put some pressure on Tottenham and Leicester.”
