Henry gives damning assessment of Arteta’s first Arsenal match

Thierry Henry thinks everyone is still “talking about the same guys” making mistakes after he was left disappointed by Arsenal’s performance in their 1-1 draw against Bournemouth.

New Gunners boss Mikel Arteta watched his new side salvage a deserved draw at Bournemouth thanks to a second-half equaliser from captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Spaniard, who last week left his role as Manchester City assistant coach to become Unai Emery’s permanent successor, is tasked with transforming the north London club’s fortunes following a wretched run of form.

Arsenal have now won just one of their last 14 fixtures in all competitions

When asked on Amazon what he thought of Arsenal’s display, Henry responded: “In all fairness it’s very difficult to judge someone after one game and only a few days of training.

“What I’ve seen today is what I’ve seen for a long time with Arsenal. I don’t think they played well but Aubameyang scored. I’ve seen that so many times.

“We go back to the [Bournemouth] goal. I don’t want to name names but we’re talking about the same guys again and again.

“[Alexandre] Lacazette should have won it with a good chance but it’s difficult to judge that team right now. They are trying to learn under a new manager so we will see.

“But what I’ve seen today is what I’ve seen for a long time… not that great and Aubameyang scored.”
