Reports are out claiming that Arsenal legend Thierry Henry believes the Gunners’ 2-1 win over North London rivals Tottenham in the League Cup on Wednesday is a massive fillip for the club.
Mathieu Flamini scored either side of a Calum Chambers own goal to see the Gunners progress through to the fourth round of the competition.
Henry believes the morale-boosting win will see Arsenal carry confidence into their upcoming Premier League fixtures, starting with the in-form Leicester City on Saturday.
“It is massive, it’s huge. Let’s fast forward a bit. You don’t want to go to Leicester having lost that game,” Henry told Sky Sports.
“They won the derby, and you saw how they played. They fought well, they had character, it maybe wasn’t flamboyant Arsenal, but they just won at the Lane.
“They’re going to be buzzing, there will be happiness around the dressing room and the training ground, and that’s always better for them to prepare for the next game.”
