Henry: Everyone wants to see Wenger break Mourinho duckPublished November 17, 2016
Thierry Henry believes the majority of football fans would like to see Arsene Wenger emerge triumphant over Jose Mourinho when Arsenal face Manchester United on Saturday.
The Arsenal manager has never won in 11 Premier League encounters against the Red Devils boss, with Mourinho gaining the upper hand in five and six games ending in a draw.
And ahead of this weekend’s crunch match at the Emirates, Gunners legend Henry is insistent that neutrals would like his fellow countryman to break his duck in the head-to-head between the two respected coaches.
“Can Arsene Wenger win a game against Jose Mourinho in the league? That’s what everyone wants to see,” he told Sky Sports.
“Obviously Mourinho does something tactically that stops Wenger from winning.
“But Arsene has had a lot of opportunities to win a game against a side Mourinho was coaching – I am talking about the league – so when is it going to happen?”
Previewing the clash, Henry also suggested that the game is something of a must-win for the visitors as they aim to keep within arm’s length of the top six.
He added: “It’s going to be a tough game for both teams.
“Maybe it wasn’t ideal for United to have the break after a victory as they had to go away and then come back.
“It’s “must-win” for United if they want to stay close to the top.”
