"And the longer you stay at a club, the more hard it becomes because you know just how much it will affect people, what a bad weekend they will have, perhaps they will cry. Not in terms of the game or the beauty of the goal or whatever that people usually talk about", Henry told the Arsenal Weekly podcast.

The club's all-time leading goalscorer told Sky Sports: "Granit Xhaka has it in his locker to play that ball over the top".

"What bothers me the most is I think that team on paper is good enough to compete every year to win the league". Yes, you score goals and we know Arsenal will score, but you need to be able to not concede.

It's no wonder Arsene Wenger wanted so badly to keep him this summer, although in typical style he put his player first and offered Giroud the chance to leave if he wanted.

"There are nice days to come for me in an Arsenal shirt". "But the not competing part, that's what hurts Arsenal fans", Henry stated.

After taking some time to analyse his league rivals throughout the weekend, Manchester United played their game last, and they took full advantage of it. Driving home last night, I'm thinking I am going to Burton with seven or eight players. Why don't you play the other ball? "Very neat, very clean, he does whatever the game is asking him to do".

However, Arsenal's opponents, Leicester City, came back into the match, leading 3-2 with eight minutes to go, before goals from Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud gave the Gunners all three points.

Thierry Henry wasn't alone in being impressed with Lacazette's first league match in England.

But Henry believes that if Sanchez stays, he and Lacazette could form a formidable partnership up front for his former side.
