Thierry Henry has singled out two Arsenal youngsters that he enjoys watching most.

The Arsenal legend is on punditry duty tonight as he watches his old side take on Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Gunners can go fourth with a victory against the home side as Mikel Arteta’s team look to continue their good run of form.

Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka have played a huge part in Arsenal’s success this season having bounced back from three league defeats at the start of the campaign and Henry is a huge fan of the young pair.

‘That’s the improvement I want to see. I know a lot of teams can tell me they struggle against the top three but that’s the improvement I want to see for Arsenal,’ Henry said on Amazon Prime.

‘You need to aim for top four and have that status obviously to try to bring players, money obviously financially it’s a mixed bag, but bring players to come and play for Arsenal.

‘But with Bukayo Saka and Smith Rowe, I know I’m talking about improvement… when I watch Arsenal those are the two guys that I can relate to.


‘I can see that it matters for them. Those are the two players that make me watch Arsenal more than the others.’

Arteta had to make a big call over Saka for tonight’s game with the winger having to settle for a place on the bench.

The 20-year-old limped off in the win over Newcastle last week after feeling discomfort in his thigh.

Smith Rowe joins Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Gabriel Martinelli in leading Arsenal’s attack.

It was the former who opened the scoring for the Gunners on 13 minutes after a neat finish from the edge of the box.
