Thierry Henry´s Arsenal exit will ensure a two-horse race for the Barclays Premier League title between Manchester United and Chelsea, according to Blues striker Didier Drogba.

Henry, the Gunners´ main source of goals in recent years and former club captain, has joined Barcelona in a £16million deal, and Drogba told the News of the World: "The exit of Henry is good news for us - it means that there is one less rival in Chelsea´s way.

"And Arsenal have a serious problem because Henry´s absence is a very complicated issue to resolve. For us this one rare change means it will be Chelsea and United fighting for the Premiership again."
