Thierry Henry says Chelsea can win the treble - Arsenal roundup

Published Add your comment

With Chelsea winning their first piece of silverware this weekend Arsenal’s victory over Everton - following on from their shock loss in the Champions League - somewhat slipped under the radar.

The 2-0 win, which ensured Arsenal kept their heads above the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool, was reassuring for the fans, and restored some confidence in Arsene Wenger’s squad moving forward. As ever there’s plenty of news focusing on the Gunners doing the rounds this fine Monday morning. We’ve compiled it for your enjoyment.

Henry claim

One man seemingly getting carried away with the tide of pro-Chelsea opinions post-Capital One Cup victory was Arsenal legend Thierry Henry. The north London hero, who is now working as a pundit for Sky Sports, claimed that the current Blues side can complete a famous treble this season, with the club still in contention for both the Premier League and Champions League.

Though it’s obvious his comments were made due to his working involvement with Sky Arsenal fans might be saddened to see arguably their greatest ever player forced to admit that one of his old rivals could bathe in such glory.

Coquelin surgery

In other news defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin may have to go under the knife due to a broken nose sustained against Everton. The Frenchman was injured midway through the game against Roberto Martinez’s side but continued playing until the end, and Wenger admitted that whilst it was a brave move it could cost him.

It’s said that Coquelin may need surgery to fix the problem, meaning that he could be out of contention for one or more games.

Pedro rumour

In speculative transfer gossip this morning it’s been rumoured that Barcelona star Pedro Rodriguez could be in the shop window, with the Catalans ready to cash in on him for just €30 million.

The Spain international has faced an eternal struggle to force his way into the starting lineup virtue of world-class players being ahead of him in the pecking order, and a host of Premier League clubs - Arsenal included - are on alert as a result.

Podolski humiliation

Lastly things just aren’t getting any better for on-loan forward Lukas Podolski, as a clip has gone viral showing him taking arguably the worst corner ever. The Germany international is finding it equally as tough in Italy as he did in north London, and the latest number doing the rounds, taken from Inter Milan’s 1-0 loss at home to Fiorentina, will have done little to help his confidence.
